    Hey centra I have a question for you. Does eating local honey help with allergies? I've heard it a bunch of times but don't know if it's true or not. I am an absolute mess so ill try anything.

    sorry I don't know what you're referencing. I'm also not gonna listen to someone.on the net and let all my chicks.kill each other. U do what u do and I'll do what I do. I've had it happen before to know it's not your pecking order You insist it is.

    [​IMG] so she lost her eye a few weeks ago in a dust up with a hawk(didn't run centrar) and now she is breaking eggs. I think she is ****** about being caged but could it be something else?

    Your smoking something too. I wrote no where about pecking order and games. I think you are really operating in the dark with respect to managing your birds.

    I don't see how it's worth the risk of losing the juveniles. I can't imagine every cock is patient enough to deal with little ones causing a ruckus. The only way you find out is when he unloads on them.

    I lost a hatch stag when a miner stag 2 weeks older than him kicked him once! Obviously not everybody's birds are on the same level here.

    Most keepers of games I am familiar with understand the merits of mature males suppressing the battles royals of chicks and juveniles. Mine will do the battle royal bit when no adult males. Cock does not need to attack them to suppress the fighting. Mere presence does it.
