Hey all. Been a chicken day for me.
Andy is being a PITA. I think he wants to be a lapper. The turkey Toms were well behaved today. They put themselves to bed, I just went out and shut there door around 5pm!
It was a frozen egg day here. I lost more than I collected. I have eggs hatching today, I hatched out a white Cream Legbar but it is not going to make it. It is like the bottom of his/her stomach never closed up. I was scratching my head on how I got a white chick out of my Creamette eggs. It appears there is a recessive gene for white in cream legbars!
It has been so cold I have not gotten anything done on the turkey front. I need to get some pens done soon. Mr T will be coming for a few weeks soon and he needs a proper room.
Welcome new people!! I raise turkeys and chickens together. I have not had a problem, I have a turkey house but my turkeys basically ignore it. We are looking at 20 below tonight and I have only 2 turkeys in the turkey house, The rest are outside or in the chicken coop. When getting turkeys go for the colors you like! Do not worry about much else. They are all the same. (acting) some are good, some are bad. Bad ones are best as dinner guests.
