I have slate hens!!
R2elk nice looking birds. I would pick the turkey with the thickest legs for my breeder. I think, and I have no reason to think this, thick legs indicate heavier frame, which is what I want to pile more meat on.
And here is an excerpt from the MN thread on Porter. Porter needs helps!!
Judy was home today, naturally, it was good entertainment. She swept, really swept chickens and turkeys off the deck about 4 times with a broom. I laughed so hard! She was not happy with my reaction to her. Even the guinea hens were on the deck and she chased them off! After the third time she decided to shut the gate we have to keep grand kids from falling off the deck. (and to keep the dogs on the deck). I told her it would not work. It didn't, I laughed. She yelled at innocent me.
I also think I owe Coffee a refund of her money on Porter. She paid too much for him. He is damaged in the head. He flew up onto the deck after the last time Judy swept the birds off. The other toms went to hang out by their pen. Porter was dismayed at this. He first gobbled than started pacing back and forth doing that nervous " something is wrong" noise turkeys make. This went on for over an hour, I think he had worked himself up so much he was foaming at the mouth like a rabid dog, Ony he was not showing his teeth.
I finally felt sorry for him and went and opened the gate. He flies up onto the deck, and he is too stupid to fly over the railing to get down! When I opened the gate he kept up pacing he would go from the corner of the deck and then towards the gate/stairs. He would stop about 2 feet from the stairs turnaround and pace back to the corner. This went on for another 45 minutes or so. I did not mention how much this action reminded me of something Judy;s sisters would do. I ain't all dumb!
I am glad you never lost them! I had my fingers crossed. Cold is better than hot..
And super the people want more.
I have 2 little creamette hens hatched this afternoon. I have 7 more eggs in there. I am worried about one it was externally pipped at 6:30 am and has done nothing since then. With these 2 I am only 48 birds short of the orders I have.
I think I am selling them too cheap. I cannot find them even close to what I am selling them for,,,,DUMB me!
The egg I was worried about hatched in about 10 minutes about 20 minutes after I said I was worried!
