Do you mean the mating?Can anyone give some tips on keeping a rooster with laying hens without the breeding getting out of control?
The 'rooster' to hen ratio of 1:10 that is often cited is primarily for fertility efficiency in commercial breeding facilities.Keep the ratio right, 1 roo for at least 10 hens if I recall.
X2.It all depends on the temperaments of the cock and hens and sometimes housing provided.
