Doubt she would help with an intruder, she's never met a hand she didn't think should pet her.
Only had one batch of turkey, Bourbon Red. Plan was to hatch some, keep some for breeding, eat extra. Unfortunately they were all toms, so all went for meat. They were good, not huge.
Have some blue slate in the incubator now. Haven't candled yet, so not sure how it is going.
I have one of those types of rescues too!

Sam and Pete are sweethearts. Dean is 6 foot tall slightly round in the midsection.
I have one more that looks like that too!

@Silkies: I appreciate that recipe. I wonder if I could find someone around here to miss it up for me...
If you need someone to split a batch with, I could take 100 lbs. or so. I think it's a great idea.

Good luck on getting rid of the lice. I don't know if lice will die with the tea tree oil.
I will try it just for kicks. She's gone who knows how long with them on her, poor thing. A few extra days won't matter. They are all laying and acting happy. If I don't see significant improvement in a few days, I will take Silkies advice.
