I adopted a foursome of three males mating with one hen, although after they came to me she picked one of the males to be her mate and rejected the other two.

I have a threesome of one cock and two hens who serve as foster parents because the male can't even figure out how to mate. But they get along very peacefully, and the two hens get along with each other better than they do with the male. He gets overenthusiastic sometimes and tries to defend the nest against his mates lol.

So yes, threesomes do happen and they can be very successful if all the partners are willing. If one or more partners aren't willing, you'll have a fight on your hands.

so complicated.. don't know how you manage

i've been reading other breeding threads, and seems like i have to permanently do the hormone reduction techniques if i don't want to breed

right now i have to monitor them every time i put them together.. for play, for meals, etc.. and i constantly monitor with a webcam.. i noticed a couple times, i leave them together for 5mins and my females keeps going over to that pied male.. if i keep the males in a separate cage by the side, my 1st female will climb all over that cage looking for that pied.. haiz

the pet shop i bought it from said it was ok to exchange for another.. i might just go change and hope its a female.. my females don't seem to like that older 1st male so less issues for me.. wonder if my females will miss that pied

its that or keep this popular pied liked by all, and constant monitoring or separating.. got a decision to make by tomorrow

Following the natural light cycle is enough to limit hormones in my flock for most of the year. They lose interest as soon as the days start getting shorter, and don't regain interest until the days have been getting longer for a few weeks.

on a side note, these 2 cages with castors that i got, like

i remove one side from each, can combine them into one big cage or open them up side by side for a big play area

i move up the bottom part so wing flapping doesn't disperse the crap below too much

i can even lean it again one wall and separate them into 2 different cages

awesome..

i just went to check, apparently there's no brand on these.. i bought it locally

its actually a 5 tier cat cage but you can use it for small animals

Measurements are:
91cm (w) x 56cm (d) x 171cm (h).
36" (w) x 23" (d) x 68" (h).
Mesh Gap is 1cm.

you should be able to find something similar on Amazon or Ebay i think
