 Hens bogging off!

PostSubject: Hens bogging off!   Wed May 03, 2017 8:26 am

We are racing what you might call the roundabout system, except it's not really. We are racing both cocks and hens but at the moment keeping them apart during the week, letting the cocks and hens be together for a short time before basketing and letting them stay together on their return from races.

We have one hen that has got into the habit of bogging off down the road to visit some other cocks that inhabit a nearby barn.

What can I do please? We are at a loss as to what to do to try and control this bird. I cannot put her with the cocks for obvious reasons and I don't want to pair them up again just yet.

Any advice please?

without keeping her in or pairing her think its will be difficult phil ...I know some who let the hens see the cocks during the week not for long ,I don't think it really effects the hens but the cocks maybe a different matter ...are the cocks and hens next to eachother on the sliding door...reason I ask is,some let the hens have the nest box section the odd night especially Thursday night but think this hen could be hard nut to crack maybe some other members may have experienced this and found a solution atb

Mate her to a cock (unless she is already). Then lock them in a box. Her instincts to mate are strong obviously.  May pay off. Take advantage.
