I have a small flock of 7 RIR hens for eggs. I've been selling the extras to family members. This summer, I would like to add to my layers and sell eggs to the public too. But, I also want to try to raise chicks with a few hens doing the work. That means I'll need a rooster hanging around. This is probably an obvious question, but at the risk of sounding dumb, here goes.... Do I have to keep my roosters separate from the hens whose eggs I sell to the public? Whats the best way to have eggs for sale and to also keep a flock of hens with a rooster to raise chicks? My birds free range all year round. Will I have to keep separate flocks to do this?
