    If you insist.


    I was talking to an employee of the feed store and mentioned about hatching chicks with them. He said that all you have to do is put "shiny" things in the water bowl, etc., but chicks sound a whole lot more fun! [​IMG] (By the way, shouldn't the spell check on here know "poults"???

    Good morning Turkey Hatchers! It's a lovely day in Iowa this morning! It's bright and sunny and supposed to hit 80 today [​IMG] Time to do some serious horse cleaning.

    The birds are pretty happy about it. Most were bold about being out in the high wind yesterday but they are ALL out this morning! I was following (or leading) the flock around trying to get flapper photos ([​IMG]) and noticed the Toms had really stepped up their game!

    They do look a little more beat up though [​IMG]

    The poor snood on this guy!
