Following me putting the 16 hens for the race team in their own section yesterday morning and away from the 2 latebred cocks and the weather being much milder the hens suddenly seem much keener to pair up. The 2 weaned youngsters seem fine in with them. I went to have a look in the loft around midday. By this time the sun was on the loft and had warmed up nicely. When I went into their section, which has a shelf just inside the door between the 2 sections, I had 3 hens fly over onto the shelf and started showing off to me. Fanning their wings out and cooing. Hopefully I will be able to get them paired up this coming weekend. Although it does look like it could be raining.
