    I am sure I joined this once before but couldn't for the life of me log in and it didn't remember my user name so I have joined again. The reason for this is that we are hatching a turkey. Strange but true. Long story, but anyway it has pipped and we are excited. Although not too sure what we are going to do with it.

    We had five chickens before and they all got take by a fox. We have since built a much bigger and better pen that is fox proof. We now have two baby silkies and two baby pekins. They look so small in the pen. We are also incubating some bantam/frizzle crosses. There are 9 embryos doing well. Can't wait.

    Greetings from College Station, Texas. From the pictures, it looks like you're doing a good job of predator-proofing your coop. Good luck with your peeps and your turkey.

    Good evening Texas. I am in Queensland Australia. Yup our pen is secure. Aint nothing getting in that sucker. If a fox manages to get in there, probably deserves to get the chickens lol. I am nervous as heck about the turkey. Will be funny as having a turkey in with chickens.

    lol. Well a friend of mine went to a nursery (plant) to get some trees and they got to talking and she told the lady how she had a broody chicken, so the lady gave her some eggs, including a turkey egg. Well the chicken hatched the chicks but has since gotten off the next because a turkey egg takes one week longer. So we thought we would put it in an incubator and see what happens. Well the darling little thing is hatching as we speak. lol.

    Hi and :welcome

    Aww, that's a cute story. Good luck with your flock!
    It looks like you've done a good job with your coop too, the foxes will have some trouble breaking into that, haha.

    P.S. I am in Adelaide, hello from another Australian. :frow
