I am still on a trial run in regard to breeding. I was able to produce 5chicks on an off-season.
Now my problem is that being nearer to the breeding season my hens are unwilling or not ready. I have 3hens that would rather stay on the pole whole day rather than go down and bond with the rooster, its been 2weeks past and still same behavior.
I am single mating 5pairs and only 2are not scared to stand beside their partner. I also noticed that the 2hens have gentler partners.
My questions are:
1. Is it because their partners are too aggressive that drives them away causing trauma?
2. Or the hens are not healthy? Might need some Vits/meds?
3. Or not their season yet?
4. Or the cock is not to their liking?
Those who have experienced same fate and was able to resolve it pls share... Thanx
