Wolf-Hen - my two age groups of turkeys didn't have any interest in each other until the babies were over 2 months old. Until then, my older turkey only really socialized with my chickens and us
. When I added a full grown turkey hen later, the interactions and bonds formed much faster because everyone was closer in age. I have limited turkey experience - all of mine are a year or younger.
Ralph and Aurora - Sorry to hear about the limited luck with exchanged eggs
. Where's the latest baby pics??? I need a fix!
I gave in to Coco and put 4 chicken eggs under her. She is not budging from her broody spot and I'm pretty sure that there was no chance of changing her mind. She is absolutely flattened on top of those eggs and growling at everyone who dares to look in her direction. We'll see if she sticks for the duration, I hope there's at least one or two that hatch. I really didn't need babies this year, but I hate to see such determination go to waste
I may just look at this as an excuse to buy a little "back up" incubator (just in case she quits part way through) LOL.
