Can any one tell me a way of getting my birds to breed
They are sablepoots
They may be too young or it may be off season for mating. Not all poultry mates year round - geese and turkeys and guineas are seasonal breeders. Hope this helps!
Just let nature take its own course. Plus the whole deed takes just a few seconds, they may be mating and you just not see them. Or they may not be old enough.
Also, I've removed your other post as it is a duplicate.
Mine breed in front of everyone!! I looked out the front window because a car was stopped in front of the house. The whole family had their faces pressed up against the windows watching my Cocky Rocky, well, um, you know. I don't know if they were horrified or fascinated!!!
I also met my UPS guy in the driveway with my package and a hen followed me down and was inspecting his feet when Big Red came out of nowhere, and, well, you know. He looked at me and said "Is that what I think it is?" I said, "Yup, we have a full on Rated R yard and garden!!" He laughed and said "I always wondered "How" it happened!!"
Yup, when Mother Nature kicks in, there isn't anything that will stand in her way.
lol - i dont have any prob getting mine to "get with it" either. My roo takes on all 3 of his favs first thing in the morning as soon as i let them out of the barn. The early bird gets more than the worm around here.
oh - AND my roo eats my laying mash too.... according to my Momma, laying mash is to roos what viagra is to men! LOL
Do you feed it to them dry or mashed
I buy laying mash from a local Amish man who grinds it. You can buy it at Tractor Supply- They call in Layenna (not sure on spelling) and you can get it in Crumbles. If you have a grain mill or a feed mill near by, they can sell it to you as well, they call it "laying mash". Laying mash if ground resembles ground corn.
