I think that there should be a disclaimer printed it would go something like this

Warning: turkeys welcome to the addiction. Some turkeys may identify as people and demand attention on an ongoing basis. These feathered children will turn into the feathered dogs that lay breakfast eggs and warm their ways into your heart and family.
Sorry I have a week old poult that has been screaming for the last 2 hours cuz I put it back in the brooder with. "Gasp" the birds!

This color scheme is terrible.. I may never set use to it... and I can’t find a way to make the print larger for my old eyes..

Alicia...I like it! And go cuddle those poor babies!!
:rant:oops:
I didn't listen.... when I moved the babies into that brooder they were acting cold so I turned the wafer up a little 30 mins later they were still acting cold so I tweaked it a little more... then at 10:30 I went to check cuz they were still SCREAMING and found that some of them were dead and others were suffering from overheating...
I spent the next 2 hours trying to save them and watched all of my bcm and all but a few of the rest die. I am so heartbroken. my DD had managed to hatch 2 black Nn and i think 4 black turkeys that she was intending to take to fair in july. both Nn and all but maybe 2 ? of the turkeys died...
I will not adjust the thermostat with babies in there again!
we have another batch set to hatch this next weekend but no more bcm.😭😭

Sorry about that. This is one of the reasons that I make any adjustments based off of the actual temperature measured at the bedding level and not based on poult reactions.

Font too small on my phone...these old eyes
Emoji will not load up on slow internet PC and locks the tab. I can't see them on the phone
I guess I was spending too much time on here anyway
