@Ravyn how you feelin?
Doubtful. Worth a SHOT, though!
I have one that I'm waiting to use. I'll be doing the conversion myself, using hubby for a consultant. You can do likewise!!!
Will these 2 lovers produce eggs? I used to have them as a kid. You could order them from a magazine, and they'd arrive in a little box full of meal worms in wheat bran. often meal worms,bran, and lizard were all enclosed in a fabric draw string bag. They never lived very long. I think they had vitamin deficiency from not enough natural light. Same with the little turtles we used to buy.
Find a known cockerel or roo, and feel from the outside just under the vent where the pelvic bones meet in a "V" shape. A cockerel or roo will have a very narrow space between the pelvic bones, and they will be firm and inflexible. Hens have a wide gap, thin bones, and flexible. Pullets will have a wider than roo gap, and thin bones that are slightly flexible.
She's hoping for eggs, and asked to use one of my incubators. Advances in artificial lighting and feed supplements do allow reptiles to have a longer lifespan. We also have two turtles, a map turtle and a red eared slider.
How early can you feel a difference?
The older they are, the easier it is. I generally don't check until at least 8 weeks. It's also useful in gauging how close a pullet is to point of lay. When the bones widen and become more flexible, it's nearly time.
It also works on past point of lay hens, the bones will narrow and stiffen.
Great info! Thanks. I'm going to check a few of my LO's this evening. Still no eggs from them yet.
Hi back at ya!
