Do I need a Rooster?

Roosters are a great way to have a watchful eye on your hens and ensure that your hen's eggs will be fertile. However, hens will still lay eggs without the presence of a rooster, though those eggs will not be fertile due to the rooster's absence. You should also be aware about your local area's laws on chicken keeping, as some local laws prohibit owning a rooster.
