This morning they actually started building a nest! It would be funny if the female (Nutty) laid eggs in time for the H-A-L . Not very likely though , knowing her she'd probably purposely delay laying eggs til after the set date (I won't tell her there is a two day widow for setting eggs)
Heritage breeds of turkeys (day-olds) tend to sell for $10-$15, Broad Breasted bronze and B-B whites sell for about $8 (around here).
Yay for the silver quail!!! My silvers are hatching today, 3 are out so far! (but one is just normal brown with stripes)
My silvers are over 2 weeks old now and all the body feathers are in, starting on head feathers. Great variety in appearances. I need to get photos. Congrats!
