    A Roo has nothing to do with egg production. He will only fertilize the eggs. Your ladies will start laying when they are ready.
    If you do not wish to have fertile eggs you don't need to keep the Rooster with them. Fertile eggs will be just fine to eat as long as you collect them and put them in the frig everyday.
