when it's dark.
I'm usually up at 3:15 my time, for the drive in to work.
I had to have 2 cups of coffee before saying hello!
Going to be a bear of a day for me. Hope you all have a great one!
sorry hope it's not to bad
Fishing Phil? I want go but I have chicken masters . good morning all I think there might be bars going on my dog house door have to build an escape hatch. while I still can .I did however restock the Baileys yesterday got two this time . so lock me in I don't care .
I just bought a toe punch today. All the birds over all the years and I never needed to, either I tracked them from hatch to maturity or they were destined for meat or production layer and it didin't matter...but I now have turkeys I want to keep for their genetics, those will get marked, and chicks once I hatch some that will be purebred and identified as such.
I used tiny tie wraps last year. They were weak enough to snap off when outgrown for the safety of the birds, but of course it's rather a pain to have a bird lose its marking.
Once I have a decent breeding flock, I will probably use wing bands on the breeders. I don't want to use those on meaties, and toe punches are lost as soon as the feet are removed.
