Well things seem to be improving, I checked the nest boxes tonight and every nest has either eggs or chicks.
Eggs = 30
Chicks = 14, made up of the following:-
8 x Light backs
2 x CFW
2 x Split Grey Cheek
1 x Grey Cheek
1 x Normal
I also recently remove ten young birds to a flight cage, comprising of CFW, Light Backs and Normal’s.
It would seem that the recent spell of rain has encourages the birds to nest.
There’s also a number of surprises coming from the aviary which I didn’t expect, one of which is an almost pure white grey cheek hen, I’ll be using this hen as a stock bird for next year.
