  9. BELOW IS A QUOTE FROM NIGEL LAYCOCK "But be warned, I have never known a hen that has already laid her 1st egg to allow the stud cock to tread her again, so the theory of 2nd egg fertilisation needs looking at." WHEN NIGEL LAYCOCK TRIED THIS HE RAN ONE COCK WITH 12 HENS AND ALL EGGS WERE FULL. THIS WILL BE MY FIRST YEAR TRYING THE SYSTEM.
  10. Please find below a quick summary of the bull system. THE BULL SYSTEM DAY ONE Remove cocks from racing section, introduce hens into racing section, feed and water them. Lock them in boxes, introduce cocks and they will mate up to the hens, as the cocks will probably already have claimed a box they should mate to the hen in their box. Leave the cocks overnight. Take a note of the boxes the hens are in at this point. DAY TWO Remove cocks in the morning, let hens out of boxes for an hour for food and drink, introduce cocks again and leave until morning. Take a note of the mated pairs and box numbers. DAYS 3 and 4 Exactly the same as 1 and 2. DAY 5 Remove cocks to y.b section. Let hens out for a drink and feed for an hour. Release stud cock, after 15 mins release the first hen, as soon as they have treaded, remove the cock and lock up the hen. Give the stud cock 30 mins rest and repeat with the remaining 5 hens. Rest him for two hours and then repeat the process. Remove cock, lock up hens and introduce racing cocks. DAY 6 and 7 Repeat days 5. DAY 8 There should be eggs by now, if not repeat the process until hens have laid their 2nd egg. Then remove stud cock and introduce race cocks, and they will sit and rear the youngsters.
