Hi what do you do to prepare your stock birds for pairing up feed wise not treatment, Do you increase the feed ,weaken it, add barley or what?
Lets hear how you do it. phil

under normal circumstances i would add at least 50% Barley for 2 weeks and wheatgerm oil 2/3 times per week before pairing

didnt add the barley this year and it was notable that the birds took approx 4/5 days longer to lay

think the extra time feeding/treading etc while waiting for the hens to lay did us a favour with the fertility rate, will probably do this again from now on (if forecast is cold), but to be honest the birds are never really overweight but not having barley they were defo slower
