BEGGINER IN MID MISSOURI - Page 2

post #11 of 12

  One of my BYC friends had her turkey tom kill one of her hens just the same way. It was terrible!  But duck drakes  can kill chicken hens also by trying to breed them. Ducks do not have the same anatomy as roosters.

Almost done building our coop. Very happy with how well it's turning out! Should give plenty of roo for the chickens and turkey for a little bit. Have figured out our quail is a boy. No eggs after a week and he's been making some loud calls during the day. Looked at info on how to tell the sex and I guess one way is that male will call for females but the females don't really make any noise? Is that true? I think it's either an A & M or English white. I'll post a pick and hopefully you all can confirm what kind it is. Thanks again for all the tips on the turkey. Glad I know now about the danger of keeping toms with chickens.
