The birds were parted this afternoon. The hens and cocks are now back in separate sections. The reason for this is because one or two cocks have been treading four or five hens and parentage can not be guaranteed. I have had 8 out of the 13 hens lay so hopefully in the next couple of days the other 5 will lay as well. I will then repair the birds on the 7th February and I expect the birds to go straight down without any fuss at all. I am no rush to breed. I picked up my rings today at our Club AGM. I have 100 in total, and expect to breed at least 4 rounds from my stock birds. So the birds have 2 weeks of resting and relaxing before the real work starts!
