Basically I’m wondering how close to ovulation is a lock with a new male too late for him to possibly father the clutch. I realize there are no guarantees which male will father if both were in the window but wondering when the window closes.
I got a last minute idea to switch males and first lock was about 12 days before ovulation and second/last was about 3 days before. Was the switch too late?
I might be able to tell paternity for some babies based on visual morphs and if enough tests are available by then should be able to ID most of the rest via testing. But just wondering if the last minute minute male is even possible as the father.
