Here in Oz, breeding season is usually about June-October but can also vary between birds. Your pair still may breed, most of my Hens are like that, they only like to be fed every now and again and are pretty aggressive towards the Cocks but that has all changed over the past few weeks, now all my pairs are sitting on eggs and the hens only comes out of the nest box so the cocks can feed them
