i can't see a bald spot on either....but that could just be my eyes....i don't think it matters if they have bald spots...from what i've learnt on your thread it only matters if u are breeding lutinos with lutinos.....allen i hope they have lots of little babies....you may be a busy man soon with 2 pairs breedings!!! i can't wait to pick our little guy/girl from either pair!!!

Two pairs breeding is not so bad! I only ever breed two pairs at a time. It's just as easy to feed 10 as it is 5.

hmmm maybe do the longer night and less fresh greens with both of them since you don't know....then you won't have to seperate them....the egg wouldn't be fertile would it?

when i looked at the egg it was cracked i,m going to have to cut down on the light and greens as this new breeding pair normally lays 6 eggs and 90% are fertile and with cinny and snow ball mating as well will give me a good numer between both for christmas chicks and yes snow ball is bald

Yea that's the way to do it. Shorter days and fewer greens and you'll probably hate this part...no scritches. all these things trigger a hen to get in the mood.
