I'm sorry to hear that Robbie. Its sods law that when something goes wrong and you take your eye off the ball something else will happen. I had two goldfinch cocks do that on me last season and I was gutted. good luck for the rest of the season. All the best. Oakey.

I would say he was trying to thread her so. Have you got another hen for him to keep him busy ??

Yeah John he is part of trio the other hen is sitting tight on eggs so i will just seperate him at night take eggs away in morning,

Dermot there is always setbacks so will wait for the next one will know to keep him seperated next time, at least i saved 2 full eggs.

Post  Robby Mitchell on Sat Mar 31 2012, 20:49

Chaps have a cracking Cock Bird had him in a trio with 2 hens both hens eggs look blank well 1st ones were other hen will be sitting 7 days tomorrow, what would are more experience breeders on here do with this cock, i have him seperated now in a double breeder on his own, would you try this cock bird again or leave him out of breeding altoghther i know its still early in the season, but all my other cocks have filled eggs no probelm.

Leave him for 2 weeks feeding him plenty of condition & softfood sprouted seed. When you see him dancing & singing his head off you know he is right then. On another note, maybe its the hens. Have you introduced the cock in time or are the hens accepting the cock ??
