No. It will depend on the breed and size difference between hen and rooster.. For example, with the Cochin's they have super fluffy butts and this interferes with fertilization. You can trim the feathers in the back if need be. Plus you should have more like 5 - 10 hens per rooster otherwise the rooster will tear up the hen by mating so much.
