Hi all, I know im still pretty new to raising chicks but i have something quite startling id like to share. My housemate and i have been raising turkeys and chickens together for about a year now and we just had our second clutch hatch out from "suzy" our grey year old turkey hen we've had since she was a little poult. Our last hatch from "mama", a brown, resulted in 4 turkey poults and a single chicken "chick", as we found 2 hens had laid with the turkeys a week after she started setting so we left 2 chicken eggs with the 9 turkey eggs and well, only 4 poults and a single chick hatched out. not bad, all a month old now and fine. Ok, about 5 weeks ago, suzy started setting on 7 turkey eggs. about a week later we took 3 different hen eggs from 3 different hens and stuk em under the living "bator". a blue from penney, a green and a white. i never bothered to candle them first, just figured i'd shoot for the moon. Ok. last saturday night i should have checked further when i heard strange noises but i was tired. next morning, we discovered 6 baby turkey poults, 2 still wet, with 2 baby chicks and only the blue egg shell. there was (and still is) 2 chicken eggs and a turkey egg left unhatched. the 2 chicks are exact opposites, one yellow with some dark spots on it's head and the other all black with a patch of yellow on it's head. i only wish i had seen the birth itself as i still dont believe 2 chicks from a single shell, but thats what we woke up to. i am still working on getting some better pics together. Anyone else hear of this? im still kinda freaked about it. Thanks. Rodster and the ant.
