    My family has two eastern wild turkey hens named Beeker and Beans, a royal palm hen named Taco and a royal palm tom named Tom (super creative there, lol), a Chinese goose named Sue and a Sebastopol gander named Gus, and two chicken hens; a golden sex link named Cookie and a black australorp named Raven. We initially got the turkeys for eggs, but our "flock" grew fairly rapidly because they're all so stinking adorable.

    Thank you for all the welcomes. Our flock has expanded a bit, again. We have four little turkeys and two little goslings now. Two of the turkeys and one of the goslings were hatched by our very broody Taco. Well, we took the goose egg from Taco when her eggs hatched and put it in the incubator. Once that one hatched I put in five goose eggs and two turkey gags in the incubator. Sadly, only one of the goose eggs made it to hatch, two didn't develop at all, one looked like it had started developing but didn't make it past two weeks and another had a blood ring around the same time.
