    but he still has a few months till breeding season hits us (I think it hits about april here)

    Mine get small trains but not one bird has eyes on a train until they are growing the 3 year trains. I do not know why some people's peas get eyes at 1-2 years and mine in CT don't LOL

    Perhaps the area you live in and mother nature have something to do with it, spring comes early here winter usually comes late so there is a reason to grow a train early ,mating is occurring now here and laying will start soon after, i could be wrong mabe others up north can chime in.

    Also just about every hen i have here has layed at a year of age and 7 of them gave me eggs and babies at the age of 2
