Yea our first round hatching on the weekend, but we lost 3 in to days, i think the one pair was my fault floated a pair from the stock but i dont think the pair had been sitting long enough, yearlings what can you say, paired the second lot of racers last monday they went together very well, bit longer day light now it makes a big diffrence when you havnt got lights.

Hi Rene , Yea i would deffinatly seperate the birds that havnt laid youl only nacker them up when they are driving to nest all the time, i wouldnt worry about the roundabout you can go on the roundabout two or three weeks in to the season it wont hurt they will last a bit longer into the season then , put the hens on 75% barley about 1 ounce a day, couple of days before you put them back together give them cocks and hens a pinch of hemp and if you can get them out get the hens out every day lock them out for an hour get them in feed them and leave them till the next day,Phil

hi mate
have you tried splitting them up and repairing can i ask have they actually paired up,
have you got them locked up or are they in open boxes
have you got a light on (have had ours on for 2 weeks before pairing from 6am til 8am then 3pm to 6.30 pm)
never really had problem with birds not laying occasionally the odd pair wont lay but gennerally do after a week or two but if they dont lay put a plastic eggs under them for a week then take them out and should go down ok if they sit them ok
