    Please review the article below (it has lots of articles on other reproductive problems too) ...
    Review the info and links listed and keep a good eye on your girl alert for the symptoms you will learn from reading this info. (I know it is a lot but truly it well worth the effort). if you could post detailed info (location feed housing what the temperature/environment is like where you are breed of bird/age etc. then we will be able to help you better.
