    Tell her to look for a snood (the bump on the head of a turkey). Snood=turkey

    And as for long lived sperm, someone just posted about hatching poults this spring after losing their tom mid-winter. So the hen was fertile 3 months after the tom died.

    I shall do that!!

    I know I am probably wrong, I just wonder how it came to be with the way I have the birds separated.

    If she looks really close she can see the snood. Sometimes the hatching goo will cake the feathers down around it for a couple days but if she gently rubs the head between the eyes it should clear the crusty stuff & let the snood pop up.

    Got my palm trio this morning.

    They said both hens are laying.

    One everyday. The other every other day.

    The bigger of the 2 hens they said keeps wanting to go broody at the drop of a hat. So we will see how that goes.

    Not sure if I want to try a broody again just yet.

    The tom is a good looking bird. I think he's is about 2 due his spur and beard size. But he suits me just fine.

    So if I get some eggs maybe ill have better luck on a hatch than my first round and have some palm poults running around.
