    Thanks everyone for the congrats on the new babies.

    One more batch next week then done.

    Was gonna keep them and see how they feather out. But decided to keep a couple of them and the rest are going to a ssmall animal swap/sale on the 11th.

    So gonna have them 9 more days. But they are easy to get attached to.

    So far all are doing well and have not lost or had to cull any.

    These last 2 hatches have been so much better than hatches earlier in the year.

    Sounds like your going to be busy feedman. That's nice.


    I am getting a few broad breasted next week. Looking forward to that and then another 15 next month from Porters.

    Ethel is back for good!

    She brought me 5 babies. I went looking for her nest to see how many eggs she had etc, but no luck finding them. I did find the other hen on her nest, She gave me the stink eye when we found her. I have no desire to mess with her after the look I got.


    Ethel was so happy to show me her babies, until I picked her up caught her babies and moved her to a secure covered run. She has a lot of variation in her chicks. Which just make me wonder even more what JJ and ethel are for sure.

    The following really shows the difference in the poults. I have another penguin, and one that looks like a Keet. but way too large to be one.

    I will get more pictures soon, but right now Ethel does not want me around.

    Congratulations on Ethels return. Glad she brought you 5 babies. I'm sure s few treats later all will be forgiven for the safety of enclosed pen for her.

    Not sure if this is the acceptable place for this but... Patience is not my virtue and this is an active thread. I know, I know, 2 months is too early to tell, but guesses on she or he? At least enjoy the pictures of my super friendly turkey that still has no name:

    Just a guess but I am inclined to believe it is a tom.
