1 male and 1 female ? sorry if its too obvious. i just want to confirm. thanks alot
Yep! You're right - a male and a female.
thanks ..they are 3 + month old already...still not laying any eggs..
Quote:THEY LIKELY WONT UNTIL NEXT SPRING. BOBS ARE SEASONAL LAYERS. SOME CAN BE TRICKED WITH ARTIFICIAL LIGHT AND PROPER TEMPERATURE, BUT MANY ARE STUBORNLY STUCK ON SPRING/ SUMMER LAYING ONLY (LIGHT CONISUERS IF YOU WILL? ) . MOST WILL NOT LAY BEFORE A YEAR OLD IRREGUARDLESS OF REAL OR ARTIFICIAL LIGHT. IF THEY ARE 3 MONTHS OLD THEY ARENT EVEN FULL GROWN YET-- 16-24WKS DEPENDING ON THE STRAIN AND IN THE CASE OF SOME GIANT BREEDS THEY WILL CONTINUE TO GROW FOR ALMOST A YEAR DISPITE BEING FULL SIZE (THEY CONTINUE TO FILL OUT AND BUILD MUSCLE/ WEIGHT)
One boy and one girl. They are really alot of fun to raise. The hen will probabally lay eggs this fall. I have raised alot of bobwhites,and they are not that hard to raise.
The one with the white over the eye is the male?
The one with white face is the male on the left in the photo the hens will be brown masked with a touch of white like the one on the right.
The male is on the left the female is on the right she will have a chesnut colored eyepatch across her face while the males have a white eyepatch. Don't worry there are no stupid questions
