Default palpating

iv been breeding my royals since november, at the end of jan begin of feb i palpated approx 5-6 marbled sized follicles, which have grown to the size of ermm... ferrero roche's lol, i palpated her this morning and i cant feel anything she just feels FAT and her belly seems sqidgey,

does this mean she isnt going to ovulate??

can anyone give me any advice?

this is the first time iv bred them.

thanks kelly

follicles you can feel, eggs you generally can't - i reckons you missed the Ov

if you are correct, leave her alone
wait for the next shed, and start the countdown
