The waiting game. I think I spend more time “waiting ” in this hobby than anything. First I set up the pairs, then I wait to see if I they get along. Once the hen is going in and out of the nest-box, I wait to see if there are eggs.
Once the eggs are in there then we have to wait to see if the eggs are fertile. Once you have a few fertile ones , first you heave a sign of relief and then you start waiting for them to hatch. Once hatched we have to wait til they are near weaning to see what we have .
Once they are weaned we then have to wait for them to mature to see if they are going to be keepers or sale birds. It’s waiting, waiting , waiting. if you are going to breed birds you need to be patient.
Right now I am in the stage of waiting to see if they are going to get along and lay some eggs.
