I have a trio of Jubilees. The Roo is 10 months old. Is he old enough to breed the hens?
Also how do you trim their bottoms?

I have never raised this breed. But you might stop by the Jubilee thread and I am sure they can tell you more than I have here! ......https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/582401/the-imported-english-jubilee-orpington-thread

Good luck with your breeding program and welcome to our flock!

So glad you could join BYC! I've never raised Jubilee Orpingtons, but I do know that most breeds are sexually mature and able to breed by 5-6 months. So, your rooster should be able to breed at this age.

Here are some articles on trimming feathers to increase fertility:

I've had to do it for my Wyandotte bantams. I trim the male's feathers below the vent and the female's feathers above the vent, creating a feather-free area of about 2.5 inches.

I hope this information and these links help! Jubilee Orpingtons are such beautiful birds.
