I am admittedly not a chicken mommy yet , but had some when I was a kid. I am so obsessed with having some silkies and Easter eggers that I am basing my house hunt partly on where I can raise them comfortably. Aywho, I am going to eat the eggs (of course), but I wonder if having a rooster will change how I have to collect the eggs, or do I have to seperate the roo from the hens if I want to eat them (again... the eggs )? How will I know if an egg is fertilized ? Does it make a difference? Should I go rooless?
