    Hi there.

    That's brilliant!

    Remember to keep your colony ratios accordingly.
    Too many males in a single covey only bring disaster. Personally I try to keep my ratio 1:10.
    Over-mating of hens will lead to lower fertility rates and a surge in injuries.

    That is really what I have right now a large injury I should have butchered my males a long time ago but I just haven't got the time.


    THANK YOU Abot87
