Tonight the last 2 cocks have finally settled into their boxes and after a few headaches and fighting between the pairs they are all now in their own boxes. I have had to close certain boxes off to stop over dominant cocks controlling two or three boxes. But all seems well now and I think things are starting to take shape. The plan now is to separate the birds next Sunday (24th January) and then keep them separated for 2 weeks before repairing them on the 7th February. I have 13 pairs now settled in their boxes. I hope the break will ensure all pairs go down at the same time and all eggs laid with 3/4 days of each other. All I need now is some nice warm weather and I will be in business!
