I have had my kaks for 2 years and had a few successful cluthces, i currently have 2 chicks and seperated my female out to give her a rest. how long is a suitable time period? Both the male and female seem happy enough and the male is feeding the chicks well.

We have sevewral pairs who in the last 2yrs yrs have produced over 100 eggs each and between 80 and 95 chicks eack....and still going as we speak.
This is not the 1st time we have done this.
It is not so much a matter of giving a rest but supply of good and consistant diet.
We generaly stop breding around the 5 batch mark each yr by removing nesting boxes.
Removing partners is far to stressful.
