Along came the Valley fire and my last step was to open the coops as I left. When I was able to come home a week later( yes I was very luck) I had lost half my chickens, and three of the ducks. All that was left was a pekin hen and a tom turkey and of course ten chickens. I was fortunate to be able too get pullets and chicks and two Pekin drakes and one pekin hen. Boy, was that a happy duck to see more ducks.
Since then, the original pekin hen acts like she has chosen the tom as her mate. Head bobbing and all. The threesome still acts like a threesome. And the turkey chases them but doesn't hurt anyone.
The female was supposably laying but I haven't seen any eggs.
So.... The ?s.
When do Pekins start to lay?
How long to get over the stress of the move?
A turkey and a duck, really?
