Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

I'm watching Chicken Run here, courtesy TV2. A thought struck me.

After the stars stopped circling my head, I started wondering exactly how active roosters are to get so many hens preggers.

I mean, crikey.

A former workmate recalls that he has seen a farmer throw a rooster into a group of hens. After serviceing a large number of them, he died. the suggestion is that a roooster *could* deal with about fifty. Bob summarised it by saying that if you give it the chance, a rooster will shag itself to death.
Hope this helps...

Hens lay eggs whether or not there's a rooster around. If she does get it on with a rooster the egg will be fertilized and it'll hatch into a chick. But the hens would still be laying the eggs even if there was no rooster. The eggs would just be chick-less.
