    well, if they are of age, i guess its kinda random..when he feels like it?

    its easier to beer sex b/c it might be the whole afternoon...and if you got beer, its ok.

    Quote:Slide me one. At least with mine, there's less crowing, but the mounting seems non-stop, so i look to see who's on top.

    so I take you can only flip them when they "active" adults to check for foam?

    Quote:I flip them as day olds. And, not to be indelicate, but the foam is the fluid that carres the semen, so there can be ahem.. "leftovers" in the hens, deposited by the roos.
