Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place. I'm ordering chicks today, here is what I'm ordering: Leghorn, Plymouth Rock, Sussex, RIR, and Wyandotte. I'm planning to order all hens, as I'm mostly wanting eggs. I had thought about adding a rooster or two, but don't know anything about breeding etc. If I add a couple of roosters, can I just leave them in with the flock, and if I do what are the chances I end up with fertilized eggs? I don't know if chickens interbreed (if that's the right word), and if so, would I end up with a bunch of mixed up chickens? How do you know an egg is fertilized, and can you eat them? Is it better to just have hens? I know with just hens that they will establish their own 'pecking' order without a rooster. If I do get a rooster or two, what breed do you recommend that isn't too aggressive? Will the breeds I've chosen get along together for the most part? Sorry so long, and probably confusing. New to this stuff.
