    I thought roo's fertility stays good until he is four or five years of age before dropping off....could it be he is HUGE and unable to perform his duty?????

    It would be nice to post Suede and Blue Boy side by side in same side!

    I do think it is size and a breeder in UK told me they always trim vent feathers when they not in show season. I have done this before with Blue Boy and it does help, but I just haven't had time of late as it takes two to handle a large bird like hisself. He is not fond of feather trimming.
