We had a few cold snaps here. Few days of minus 32 then go up then down again. Some hens sit tight others do not. Hens that have sat in the Winter previous had no problem. Hatched them Dec 28th. Flying out again today. 4th time. 3 months old. Some cocks cooing around hens. Not flying too long. Still unsure of their suroundings. The others also weaned are of different ages. Helps keep the older ones grounded somewhat. Have 33 over and will move some more this weekend. Lots of feral pigeons around. They have young in the nest also I beleive.

Advantages and disadvantages. Early bred and weaned young much older by a few months, More mature. Darkening or light system easily manipulated if needed. Young birds on the nest middle of racing season. Stronger birds usually. If loft not heated. As regards extremes in weather etc,. I assume would be the opposite in the hot countries? Do not know.
Disadvantages. Non-proven winter breeders is chancy. Chilled eggs, low hatch rate. Snow in loft unless loft is tight. But not a problem as all is frozen. Warms up good clean out needed. Heated waterers a must. No fun battling through a few feet of snow to feed the birds. Full hoppers still not a solution as they only eat what they want. Does one advantage outwiegh the other? Up to each individual to decide.

For every example of something going wrong you will have another saying exactly the opposite, and it worked for them.

As for winter breeding, or early breeding, we have young wood pigeons in the garden now, which must have incubated in tne worst period of frost etc; we have had for years, at this time of year.

When I had completely open loft with young and old together the odd couple did breed and hatch but the majority did not, during the worst weather.

There never has been nor ever will be anyone that knows all the answers but one learns most from ones own actual experiences which are undeniable.


Regards.

screening are the byproduct from cleaning grain, stuff like weed seeds, wild mustard, wheat, lentils etc become the screenings. i like the organic screening because they are heavier having more wheat and other grains in the mix, conventional screenings are usually lighter because the herbicides used kill off all the weeds so less good stuff in it. hope that makes sense.

i use a lot of pealed oats and screenings during the winter ans switch to pellets once breeding season rolls around

We used Runch for the finches, used to dry it out on mesh screens then riddle it to get the chaff out. Always for free at the farms.
