OK, so there was a swap off going there. Five for the one. Not bad that you let five go. Probably a good thing because you were getting a bit over balanced with the roo to female ratio. For most birds it should be ten females to one male.
Yeah that’s kinda how it went, I knew I couldn’t keep them all so iv only kept my big Brahma I couldn’t let him go, I really struggled to let my black Araucana ricky go but I can get him back for breeding if I want .OK, so there was a swap off going there.

Yeah so she was as bought just as a companion as she’s his sister I can’t use them for breeding so I’ll cross the Brahma hen with my black aracuanaWe're back to the Brahman thing again, you have a male but you got the female for a different breed rooster?
I have the Brahma rooster and his sister, and one speckled Sussex cross roo, rest went to the farm so just them two Roos and all the rest are girls, I’m not sure what breed or sex the chicks are, also bluebells eggs should be hatching any day now today is day 21OK, I thought you didn't get the rooster because they were related. Not that you had him but couldn't use him.
This whole screen conversation can get confusing when we can't correct each other in real time.

Haha yeah hopefully my wife’s called Lynn too so yup all the Ls 😂 I haven’t acquired anymore birds since the last time we spoke but I do now have an American xl bully puppy we only got her two days ago. If you have Facebook would Mabey be easier chatting their or WhatsApp 07999431367So, Liam is having a baby Lily. That will be easy to remember with the L's.
You really have it bad. I'd tell you to get an incubator but that would make things so much worse.
Ahh no worries.I don't have either one. I hate FB. WhatsApp I've never bothered with.
LOL I can see it now, when Lynn is aggravated with one of the L's she's going to go through everyone's name before she hits on the one she wants.
Handsome bird!Ahh no worries.
quick question, my silkie hen started laying again and iv had an egg from her the last five days, iv read they lay 2-3 a week. Is it normal for them to lay more after starting again? If so will it slow down again?
