Cat cs34 for sale?
I got some one-day-old females from a local dealer and they told me that the breeder sd they were "in the house" as far as the male had been since I got them.
What does this mean exactly? They're still a bit tiny but are they not yet ready to hatch? Is there any way to tell when they will hatch? I want to know what the breeder was talking about as I'm a bit afrd of putting them into a broody.
If they don't get used for breeding it would be good to find out when they would get good egg laying age. Some may not ever be brooders and some may never be incubators. I have seen some tiny ones get a nice set of little eggs out of them as long as it was only the second clutch.
Is there any way to tell if they would be a good choice for breeding? I'd love to be able to get them into the house but I don't want to risk them not being ready.
I just went to the local fish store and asked what they were as the breeder only sold a couple of weeks ago.
They sd they had 4 of the red ones left and they were about 8cm long. If they are still a bit small and you don't want them to breed them I wouldn't recommend putting them into a broody but they would be good as free range eggs for you to collect and incubate. If they start hatching you will be able to hatch them as they are now and can then go into a broody.
I'd be worried if they were still young though as they won't be as good for breeding. They are likely to have a higher hatch ratio than a brood of older females (unless you keep them in a very large box) but the ones that have already hatched may be small so it depends on how good they get as far as egg laying is concerned.
When they're smaller the females will produce more eggs because the eggs are bigger. The big eggs are a bit more of a challenge to incubate but they are a good size when they hatch. They also lay eggs for a bit longer before they hatch.
If they haven't hatched by now they will have a bit of a time so I'd be concerned if you want them to hatch asap.
As I sd in my first post I am concerned that they may never breed because of their size and I have a bit of a fear of putting them in the broody as I don't want to break them and I don't want to have to replace them if they can't breed at all. If I put them into a broody when they haven't yet hong they will have to stay in there for a long time until they hatch, that will mean I can't do any other work as I won't have enough time to look after them properly.
I'm going to be doing a lot of egg collecting as I want to incubate some of the eggs for future breeding. I don't know if I want to wt until the breeder is able to sell some females so I can get some good egg laying females or if I should get smaller females as they will be easier to handle and have less of a chance of breaking when they hatch.
When the females get good laying age then it will probably depend on how many females the breeder is selling but it is worth keeping in mind the age of the females. If you are buying one that is close to the right age then that may be a good time to start looking for females.
If I get a good egg laying female I'll be using her for both egg collection and to breed to. My current females are great as brooders but not egg layers. I'm just a bit worried about having to put them in a broody if they don't start hatching because I don't want to break them.
I hope to get at least one female hatch next week but it looks like it will be in the order of 2 weeks. I have about 25 females and I know that there are a lot of little ones in the brood so I can only hope that I get at least one good egg layer.
Hi I am not trying to argue with you, it is just the way you have sd you had these females.
But as for the question I think what is being sd is that they have ld eggs that are in the house, but they are not yet fully mature. I think when he sd he was in the house he meant that the males had been in the brooder, but there were still eggs that were being ld.
I think he was talking about them being in the house because he wanted to make sure they were still alive and he could come and take them out as they were ready to be moved to their permanent home.
When they start to breed they start to change colour, they will have more feathers and their colouring will be more orange than they are now. This is the point at which they become a brooder. If they are not bred they won't get any more feathers or they will stay the same colour as they have always been.
I am worried as the males may have been in the house for longer than they have been in the brooder and if they have been in the house longer then it will be a bit more difficult to put them in a broody as they have been out of the house for longer and will be less used to it.
I don't know if I should be putting them into a broody now or in 2 weeks, if I put them in now I'll have to move them from the brooder into a home that I have ready for them. If I put them in two weeks then I can put them into a home that I have ready for them, but it will be harder to find one that is already broody.
I'm not sure I understand what the point is of being in the house for a few days before they are ready to go into a broody.
I know it is a bit of a hassle but if you want them to breed and you have no other options then
