But the hens have been wandering too far for comfort so we got a rooster to help keep them in line. How quickly do we need to collect their eggs and refrigerate them now that we have a rooster fertilizing them? We don't want baby chicks.

I'm trying the rooster collar method and... I'm not having much luck. Romeo hates it and it currently might be slightly muffling him. I live in residential area but other people have roosters but Romeo is just... so. ... loud! He's such a good rooster though. Takes care of the ladies, has killed a crow defending them.
Ahhh I'm not sure the stress or the noise of feeling like I'm torturing more Romeo is worth this battle! I'm leaving for 4 days and have house sitters that will not be able to adjusting the collar.
I feel like bad chicken mamma and worse neighbour.
