    I have twelve hens and two roosters, what are the odds that my eggs are fertile?
    Thanks.

    I've seen my EE boy mating with the girls, but I haven't actually seen my cochin doing so. If I want my EE boy and EE girl to have chicks, how long do I have to seperate them out before I know for sure that I'm not going to get mutts? My girl isn't terribly broody yet - but she tends to stay on the golf balls until I shoo her off. I'm hoping as the weather warms up to separate them from the rest of the flock for spring chicks....
