    Hello all!

    I have a cock bird (~ 1 1/2yr old) that has not shown much interest in breeding. He had more interest in breeding last year... His weight is good, he does not have mites, or any other obvious health problems. Has been wormed recently. I am currently testing fertility now- eggs have been in an incubator for a few days. Will candle at day 10. Anyone else have problems with a lack luster cock bird?

    Thanks!

    Could be he just hasn't geared up for spring yet.
