An occasional feature – the Chicken Misconceptions where we tackle Chicken Misconceptions. Now that is cleared up, lets get started.
To get Eggs, you need a Cockerel.
Hens will quite happily lay Eggs without a Cockerel.
If you want the Eggs to hatch, then of course you do need a Cockerel.
If this is too confusing please ask your parents (or your children) about the Birds and the Bees.
