Jill’s come into season later than hobs, it’s all to do with the days lengthening, it won’t be long before the hobs will be caged on there own

Aye im in two minds put the young jills in with the old jills  easier feeding and cleaning but is 12 jills too many for the snipped hob ?  and move the snipped guy  between the two lots of jills ?? Its just i find if he has a few jills he just seems to pump his faveroutie and miss some ??
