    Turkey Stomping

    My 3 month old BBW, took after my dog tonight. Fluffed up, tail spread and stomping at him. I thought for sure the turkey was a hen. Do hens stomp when threatened?

    Chicken Picking

    I just got rid of my rooster. Now all the suddened hens have bald spots. Haven't caught who's doing it. Does this have anything to do with getting rid of the rooster?

    My roosters are sleeping together

    I have 2 roosters, one a black australorp and one a SLW, both are about 16 weeks old, raised together. They sleep together in the same nesting box. BA started crowing several wks ago but has now stopped. Is this norma? Have to say they look kinda cute squished into the that nexting box, lol.

    I read on Pap's Poultry site that if they have the extended eye liner they are girls, hope that helps.

    My chickens have picked my garden clean of tomatoes. They'd all be dead by now if was going to hurt them, lol. They love them, ripe ones only though. The romaine lettuce I grew for them, they won't touch, lol.
