    So I have a extra roo in the coop and didn't know it till last week. We really thought it was a hen till "he" jumped on my favorite chicken!!! [​IMG] Well, we are incubating the eggs & I was wondering how long we have to wait till none of the eggs will have been fertilized by him? [​IMG] We have a very attractive polish in the coop and we want any future offspring to look like him. [​IMG]
