This is my first attempt at raising chicks! I started by brooding 6 chicks at the end of July. They are all thriving and in their new coop! I decided to try brooding 3 turkey poults that are now just over a week old and I thought I would have more time in the small brooder, but this morning 2 had escaped and the 3rd was on the edge! luckily i got them all back in and looks like they are all okay! guess i’m working on a larger brooder today!

    Hi and welcome to BYC :frow We're so happy you've decided to join us :ya
    Turkey poults can be a real blast, my first time with them, came in and had 25 running around the garage and not one in the brooder. Who knew they could jump and fly at a week old? I'll look for you on the turkey forum.
