    At what age are roosters old enough to do their part in producing fertile eggs for my broodies? How many "girls" does each roo need in his own little "flock" to keep both hens & roo sane? Thanks for any help! We are new to flock management as we just had 3 hens & an a-sexual rooster before. Any guidance appreciated!
