    Please post any recommendations on a website that instructs newcomers to the process of artificially inseminating chickens.

    I am redesigning my system of management. I have one large coop, several large cages, and a small coup. Yet I have Marans, Dorkings, and Javas. I have a couple Giant roos roaming the yard.

    I have a single injured Java roo(dislocated his wing at a young age and previous owner didn't notice until it was too stunted to do anything), my main roo was killed. I have two Dorking roos, two Marans roos, and then the two free-ranging roosters.

    What I am thinking of doing is, placing all the hens in the large coop, where they have plenty of room to do their thing and plenty of nest boxes. While the roosters, I can distribute through the small coop and large cages and tether them in the yard for exercise and sun.

    You tube video of current method to collect from male

    PouletsDeCajun started a thread and within it are instructions to collect from the male and insert collection to the female

    Some information regarding AI

    another bit of information

    I think the above is mostly geared toward same day transfer however I do see some reference to storage of samples if needed in the last 2 articles.
