    Hi Ya Bird Lovers

    I have Just Brought 2 hens (Siblings) they are almost 3 months Old and have just brought a Male roughly the same age (Unrealated to hens)
    my question is How do i go about Making up a "Trio" the male currently is in a seprate cage how do i go about introducing the Male to the hens ?
    also what are are they sexually mature and ready to breed

    thanks ...

    I would put them together in a new cage. You could put up 5 girls with one roaster. He will breed them all! They can successfully breed from 8 weeks on. Good luck!:)

    Sounds like a great plan. You do know there is no where to hide when the male is in the cage! He will find those girls every chance that he gets!
