the loft floor was white this morning as we had 12 ybs hatch out last night egg shells everywhere bounce bounce bounce and 4 ybs 2 and 3 weeks old ...I am noticing more and more how the parents/feeders are waiting for me in the mornings to enter the loft with their mineral tray ,I cant leave in overnight as it gets too damp...they go for the minerals before any food a real important aspect for the feeders to keep their reserves topped up with minerals ...how is other members breeding going

ive eggs hatching almost daily Darren, and while they are feeding im giving the black minerals every day fresh in the trays, along with the usual depatagoon ration daily...I find them expecting it and waiting for me to put it down for them, but all feeders are looking well to say they have ybs, and along with plenty of corn and water they look to be rearing some decent young birds.

at a certain time in the afternoon I remove all feeding trays, minerals etc.
