Most of my stock birds are on eggs. Do not expect 2 from each. Weather is too cold.

Beginning of febuary. I was told , since my breeders are virginal to give them a chance to freeze some eggs. Got to start adding light gradually over the next 4 weeks? I'm going to buy rings this weekend

M interested in what hal says too. I was told they have a tendency not to sit on eggs enough when cold. Had to order some pigeon stuff yesterday. I was hoping to wait

I would think once they start sitting both eggs most should be okay..maybe better to remove 1st egg to somewhere warmer till send egg is laid....

Makes sense FW. I'll do that. What I really need to do is buy some breeding record forms

Thanks FW. I'll do that also. I've tried the American racing unions website. My tablet doesn't like that place much for some reason. I've got to get a laptop

Banded first 2 today. Some younger birds, not winter bred before, hatched 1 young bird each. With the wind chill factor minus 34 C here. The birds sit tight. There are drawbacks to winter breeding. Changed the light bulbs under the waterers to 60 watt. The top part of the waterer, about a third, solid ice. Advantages are, older young birds to race, better health as no bugs/bacteria survive in this cold. Much better immune system. ie more exposure to emerging bugs/bacteria as the weather warms. Never had a youngbird freeze in the nest, far as I can remember.
