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.
Will she a snood at this young age?
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.
Here are the ones that hatched with this one..
The first pic looks like a guinea chick
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.
