PostSubject: Raising 3 chicks   Wed Mar 16, 2016 5:45 pm

I've got a pair that have jibbed their eggs, both look to be full, so would it be worth putting an extra egg under other pairs in case theirs are clear, or , if full would the pair raise 3, it's not something I've heard of before so I thought I'd ask before googling rubbish on the net, cheers guys.

lofty difficult the first 7 to 10 days after that no problem but be better if the other birds have a clear egg to swap over

i would be thinking why have they left their eggs ....is their a predator scaring them or maybe another reason like a dominant cock trying to take over their box ,i would think their is a reason for it and personally i don't like the idea of 1 pair rearing 3 in the nest ,never liked to go against what nature intended the 2 ybs need all the colostrum they need for immunity let alone 3

It's the big red grizzle cock daz, only a you gun his-self and he's been chasing the crap out of his hen, I think I'll chuck em and let him go again, yes the more I think about it the more I'm convinced to sling em , off down to loft now, thanks all.

I wouldn't raise 3 in a nest, especially if you intend to race the parents in the early races.
