How Many Successful Matings Are Needed For Fertilization

Recommended Posts

i was reading online that with one successful mating a pair will be fertile up too two weeks true or false? and i read somewhere else that the eggs get fertilized just before getting laid with a successful mating that took place on that same day or moment before it being laid

im just curios to know more info thanks

The hen can store sperm for about 2 weeks so a whole clutch can be fertilized with one mating.

 

Probably mating regularly would have a better chance getting all the eggs fertilized

I have been using one cock over several hens for years using various methods. I have found that regular mating is the only reliable way to get fertility.
