My hens are laying eggs but not sure if the males are mating, will they in the winter time outdoors?
Do you have ringnecks? At one time I raised ringnecks for sale. Hatched all my own stock, and never had hens lay in the winter. You don't have lights on them do you? Frankly I don't know if they will breed in the winter. Whatever is sparking the hens to lay may also be causing the cocks to breed.
yes they are ringneck and I have a white heat lamp on them that comes on by dusk to dawn timing. At least one has just started to lay eggs. I put them in the incubator but no sign of embryo yet.
