Hi mate,

The Goldfinch have stopped at 4 eggs with hen only sitting on them some of the time.

It's a case of fingers crossed now.

I see you went for the European mutations cages, they are so easy to clean out and hang the external pans. I'm swapping all mine next season and good luck with the rest of the season.

Well that's weird. Previously each vid had a black screen. Now they have the first frame of the vid showing. The first one now plays so I assume they all do.

Ste 1960 just looking at your update and I would suggest that you have possibly taken the chicks away from the parents a little to early, but putting the spare hen in with them luckily has turned out to be a blinder,
Generally I try and leave my chicks with the parents as long as possible [as long as 28 days or more sometimes]sometimes at the cost of the next round affraid affraid affraid
I don't see the point in all the hard work getting the chicks to that sort o age only to loose them because they won't or can't feed themselves.

This is not a critisium but more of a guiding hand and I hope it helps you.

That's why I joined this forum.

Once again thanks. Smile

Thanks.

Yes, I reckon the sudden drop in temperature has a lot to do with it for sure.

That's why I tend to keep all lights on until 28th june, then off they go and let nature take over, good point to use light as you suggest with deep depressions that we are getting this year it can look really dismal!
Think we can all blame the weather, but it's always a mixed bag here, too hot, too cold, too wet, cloudy, thundery etc etc but sometimes it is us who make the mstakes?

My lights are on all year round on a timer, so I can discount that.,

To be honest ste I think the birds may still be affected by natural light or a change thereof. The only way get away from it would be to go completely artificial.

Hi Steve, you are certainly not on your own mate, my birds have been hit and miss also, not
a great first round, a few nests on the second round still to hatch out ( hopefully ).
All the best. Oakey.

Hi,

Really nice looking satinettes, are they all straight or have you some mosaic amongst them?

Cheers
