Update Docile Hen and Handsome Dude
Remember "Handsome Dude". a German Roller male. He has been busy. After the Sweetheart Dance on Valentines Day and making the Docile hen his first love, he has been a busy boy and left a string of broken hearts, currently with number 5 and 6 and more planned.
The Docile hen just was not interested in any male but with time and conditioning, finally she chose Handsome Dude.
Three of her eggs were fertile and she has been an excellent feeder. Normally, I wait till chicks are banded to give greens but she feeds so much that one of her chicks looked a little red instead of rosy pink. To back off the protein, I feed her some quinoa with broccoli.
