My female Cocoa is 12 weeks and my male Ebony is 14 weeks old now. Man how they grow so fast. My question is since it will be in the middle of Nov when my female finaly is old enough to lay will she or will she wait until it gets warmer in spring. We don't have harsh winters here at all. They usualy are 60-70 degrees during the day and range from 25-40 degrees at night. It only actualy freezes a few times. We get one good snow (meaning 3-4 inches ) but that usually isn't until Feb. Another question, should I be giving her oyster shell before or after I find her first egg? Off topic, Ebony just got his drake feathers in, for sure a little guy.
