    Driving hard.

    Post by Bob on Fri Mar 05, 2010 6:06 pm

    I have a yearling cock driving a 2yr old hen very hard. As soon as she leaves the nest the cock is after her she bearly has time to drink. The cock sits by the nest and hen all day only leaving her side now and then to collect straw. The funny thing is the hen has been sat on eggs for the last week. The cock will not sit the eggs but just drives the hen to the nest.

    strange are the eggs getting covered all day by the hen what i would do mate is move her eggs and give her dummys count the days and see if the cock sits if he dont you will lose the young later
