R2elk hit it on the nose Return the TOM! Demand money for your hens!
On the Tom front. I have 3 Toms that signed their death warrants last night! They were beating the poop out of JJ. I jumped in and helped JJ. It was 2 against 1. It was humorous, when I look back, when I started chasing the toms off, they would run from me. I was slapping and pushing them away from JJ. NOT hurting type slaps ( do not think I was beating poor animals). At first they would try circling around me and run towards JJ. JJ figured out it was tag team wrestling and when I started pushing them he joined in chasing them. We ran quite the route with them stopping to take a shot at JJ then running away.
My DW saw them picking on JJ and she jumped in too! She is the one that ordered the death warrants. She told them no one is going to pick on her JJ. She then went and comforted JJ. It was sickly syrupy. She was hugging, petting, whispering sweet nothings in JJ's ear. After about 5 minutes of this, I was told the other Toms were going to freezer camp. We put JJ back in with Ethel for the night. I do not dare let JJ stay there as I want them to set fairly soon.
I need to check with the Lady Vet and see if I can do them this weekend. A couple of the my turkeys need to be retested because the tubes were bad, not because any of the turkeys having a problem. I just want to make sure I do not screw up the licensed hatchery stuff.
My Hen that tested positive tested clean at the lab she is out of quarantine as am I, I can sell birds and eggs again.
The babies (poults) made it through the night fine. New eggs into the hatcher today.
