2018 -2019 breeding season drawing to a close. How was yours

A slow breeding season for me, but I have finished with my best pullet numbers yet, thanks to a low cockeral count. I am all so quite pleased with the quality of the bird's iam seeing to date. So let us know how your breeding season has worked out or gone.

I started off with way more cockerels than pullets in the early batches but the later batches have evened out. It's a bit early to tell quality with most but I have one very promising Splash Orpington pullet.

My Faverolles were very difficult to breed and the few birds I have seem to succumb to all sorts of ailments like slipped tendon and Mareks disease. We'll see whether any reach maturity and start to lay.

Number wise I'm a lot better off than last season when more than half of my young birds and several adult birds were killed in a dog attack - in town!
