I hope this is the right forum for this lol ok I have a total of 6 hens as of right now and zero roosters every rooster we've had has been ornery and floggy and therefore couldn't stay. I would really like to keep a rooster for breeding purposes, perhaps in his own coop/tractor? is this done? if it is, how would I go about getting my hens bred? put them in one at a time or put him in with them for a certain amount of time? After Im sure the deed is done how long until the eggs are fertile? Do I just stop collecting and see if one goes broody? If none go broody are the eggs ruined or can I incubate them? how long do I have before they are unhatchable? Im not a newbie to chickens ive just never dealt with the breeding aspect of chickens before so this part is fairly foreign to me. any advice would be a great help!
