Hey Fowlplay are you an old large game cocker. I know they use the term single mate for mating a pair. In the exhibition poultry world single mate usually means one mating to produce show specimans of both sexes and double mate means a separate mating for the sexes. Pair mate means one on one, trio mate means 1 male 2 females, quad mate 1 male 3 females and any more I usually consider a flock mating which is a bunch of birds with one or more males running with them. Not trying to be smart, just trying to get us on the same page with terminology so we understand each other better when discussing. However I do know old habits are hard to break. Got a few myself.
