Only one turkey out of the 4 I hatched was a boy, and he dressed out to 13 lbs!!! Even BF had a hard time controlling him. The two girls were 8 and 7 lbs dressed. The chanticleer rooster also got a pardon and he and the jubilee orpington will father next year's chicken babies. The chanticleer hen and the (gorgeous and friendly) buckeye are also staying on board.
You are very welcome and it was my pleasure. And thank you so much for helping me on my shipping method I do appreciate your help so much.
How wonderful that you got some meat for the freezer and some new breeding stock for next year to get some new blood into the bunch.
Hopefully next year you will have some nice sized stock to chose from.
How is yours and BF's recovery coming along? Hopefully next spring you will not have any ticks around!
