Cockerels treading the hens
Has the cold weather had any effect on the cockerels interest in the ladies ?
Not that I've noticed! He still seems busy with my girls (when I can see him that is - they've been spending a lot more time huddled up in their house). I was starting to get more eggs though, but production has dropped down again - is this because of the cold? I thought it was hours of daylight that affected laying...but perhaps also other types of 'stress'....
I have 3 young cockerels at the moment and they are all up and at it ! Loads of eggs and all look fertile when I crack them open so the cold weather is certainly not dampening their ardour !!
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !

Wish mine would! Not even got many eggs yet!
You've only got one life - live it!
