And yes Annie laid an egg on top of a broody Australorp. I just saw the chickens head poking up from under her tail. After she laid the egg & left the box Thelma was trying to roll that big egg between her legs.
I got 7 eggs today. I need to get the Toms in there soon. It is almost time to start hatching in earnest now.
I called the turkeys tonight and they all went in the pen, I have a video of it. When they got inside I noticed I was one short. I found him at the hen pen strutting. I have some video of him being ran back to the Tom pen, but I had to shut if off as he did not go in so well.
Once he got inside he decided Porter ratted him out, they had a little altercation. I am thinking that will not be the Blue that gets mating privileges.
Not the video I wanted..Here is the trouble maker, when I finally got him in the pen..
The next one will show bedtime. I hope., but it takes me forever to upload these.

Here is the one I wanted to show first. The Boys going to bed, minus the one straggler.
All your boys went in but one. He was showing off for the girls.
Did you ever figure out a price for trained toms? The video is a good marketing tool.
I think the altercation was porter reminding him what freezer camp was about. Porter didn't want to be guilty by association.
Congrats on your 7 eggs.
On my front. Down to one egg left off ebay. I can see him moving the membrane when I candle but he has not pipped yet.
My girls are still mad at me for penning them up. My toms for separating them. But I have gotten 5 eggs over last couple days.
Have enough eggs now for turkey egg skillet scramble.
Will start saving next week for the incubator.
Why did you pick her up?
Haven't you heard the saying "Leave sleeping Dogs and Turkeys lie"?
