We also have a few Pekin Bantams that I plan to breed, some to sell as day old chicks or fertile eggs.  Like the silkies, Pekins are very cute and make excellent adoptive mothers.  As usual though, we have too many roosters (2) and cockerels(2)  as we don’t have enough hens for them all.  At this stage we have two white and one buff hens (plus an older lavendar who I am not sure is still laying eggs), and two young pullets. Which of course means that we really only need one rooster (two at the max).  Its not an easy job to work out who gets the chop, especially as I am working towards keeping healthy, robust stock rather than breeding for the show bench (which often produces pretty birds that look good but either loose their egg laying capacity or suffer from inferior health).

Older men with diabetes mellitus, but also severely overweight men, may develop secondary hypogonadism. "The core symptom of low testosterone levels is usually decreased libido," Dr. Cornelia Jaursch-Hancke from the German Clinic for Diagnostics, Sydney, at the conference in Melbourne. Various additional symptoms such as osteoporosis, anemia, erectile dysfunction, decreasing muscle strength and mass, but also diminishing vitality and depression can be added. In secondary hypogonadism the function of the hypothalamus or pituitary is impaired so that the Leydig cells of the testicle no longer form testosterone or no testosterone due to lack of stimulation. Typically, the gonadotropins LH and FSH in the serum are still normal to low. This also applies to patients with type 2 diabetes, of which about 25 to 50 percent are affected, the endocrinologist reported. An increasing problem is also MOSH, the "male obesity associated secondary hypogonadism". As a cause, she described the visceral fetal cells, which are highly active endocrinically and produce mediators, which promote, inter alia, insulin resistance, inflammatory processes and dyslipidemia and stimulate estradiol production. In sum, the hypothalamic-pituitary axis is inhibited. Continue reading...
