Roosters are male, and they do not lay eggs. Hens, their female counterparts, lay all of the eggs, and they do not need the rooster's help for that.Know More
Although roosters do not lay eggs, they are a valuable part of the breeding process. In order for the egg to produce a young chicken, a rooster must fertilize it. The rooster also helps to keep watch over the hens and their eggs, and he helps the hens to find food. Because they are not an integral part of the egg creation process, most urban areas that allow backyard chickens do not permit roosters, as they are too noisy.
