    Interesting to see the results. Do you know of there are any plans to try to lower the cock bird numbers since heavily imbalanced and competing with hens for food and survival?

    Thanks

    Thanks a LOT for the report ! One thing that jumps out is the number of volunteers ' it used to be three times that amount . Yes the PGC was very happy with the ratio .
