I had to chuckle to myself when
Hens will lay eggs just fine without the presence of a rooster in the hen house. You only need a rooster in the mix if you want hens to lay fertilized eggs.
When I started keeping hens almost five years ago, I was surprised by the number of people who did not know this. Perhaps this information will allow some folks to re-examine their thoughts about this issue if they know that roosters don't need to be present for a neighbor to have fresh eggs.
