We have 2 layers that are laying eggs now and are 6 months old. We have 4 other chickens that are 12 weeks old and one of them we have wondered if it was a rooster. This morning one of the chickens is starting to do a weak crow but it was a crow. I need to find someone who will take the roo and keep it or eat him. We can't bare to eat him since our chickens are really pets with benefits. We can't keep the rooster in our area so we need to find a home for him. My concern is should we start keeping him separate from our current egg layers until we find a home for him as to not get fertilized eggs? I'm unsure on the whole egg fertilizing process but I don't want fertilized eggs. Thanks alot for any information and if you live near Duluth MN and want a rooster let me know.
