Two years ago in June 2015 I bought three show quality hens and a rooster . I collected eggs and waited patiently for chicks but the eggs were never fertile. That rooster died in the Jan and he was always a weak fella do it wasn't completely unexpected .
So I contacted the breeder told him of my drama and bought another rooster.
Now I am having trouble getting this one to mate. The breeder gave me an older rooster this time thinking she may have been the prob before . . What can I do? The hens are great healthy girls and are big girls. I let our other rooster in with them and I could hatch his eggs from them in my rcom incubator no problem .
Is there a trick to getting a rooster to get going besides the berroca trick pls?
I know it's not my rcom ( I recently had a 99% success hatch with some backyard eggs) .
Any advice appreciated .
