Ethel is a Rusty slate, but there is no doubt she is the alpha hen...
I have one more weird thing to report. When it was decided Mr T would not be able to make it here this year, I put the other Blue I had in with the 3 girls. ( I had 4 for Mr T)
I moved the blue red Bourbon out and gave her to JJ.
Anyways this blue had spent a week walking around the outside of the girls trying to impress them. It is the same blue that did not go into the pen the night I videoed them all going it. He likes his girls!
You would think this would mean mating like crazy. It does not. The Blue is kind of a pervert. He has 3 girls, instead of finding one of them, he goes into an empty cubicle and pleasures himself! I have no idea what I am going to do, I do not think he has mated once, his girls eggs are most likely worthless!
Any Ideas? Maybe buy him a subscription to Hen House, or Play Tom... Idiot birds!
