Anyone have first hand experience with Siamese Firebacks as trio's?
Pairs only for firebacks.
That's what I hear. Think I could separate the hens in two different pens and move the cock between the two during breeding?
I don't really know,but it's certainly worth a try..
Wouldn't the cock/hens have problems getting used to the change, depending how often you move the male?
Couldn't answer that question?I've heard that ringnecks breed the hens at the beginning of the season and they are fertile for the duration og that season.I don't know if there is any confirmed facts on that.Why not just get another male and breed 2 pairs?Are the hens related?
The birds are unrelated. I had 2 pr, one cock was unintentionally liberated. I may eventually replace him via purchase if I must. I would to prefer to replace him with one of my own 2014 hatch, God willing. Currently I am not interested in continued investments in pheasants. I already have a giant money pit called "waterfowl". I will separate the hens for their safety. I will move the cock to the single hens pen once his primary hen has begun to lay this spring and see what happens. I will post any interesting results this summer.
Anyone know when Firebacks usually begin breeding and laying in the Western US? I have been researching and cannot find much at all.
Depending on your location and weather. Mine don't start till May or June and will lay clutches in june and july. Crestless sometimes in April.
