Treat to Encourage Boys to Be Boys

Today I made up a special treat for the guys in the aviary. It is equal parts of wheat germ (had Kershmeier toasted wheat germ on hand) and brewer's yeast (had Lewis Lab brand Brewer's Yeast Flakes).

This will bring the males on a gentle bit but do not feed the hens unless they are already ready, mating and getting ready to lay as it will push them to lay whether they are ready or not.

What do you mean "This will bring the males on a gentle bit" ?

I mean it encourages breeding behavior, singing, dancing, feeding and mating but not aggression which animal protein encourages.
