Oh great, more Turken threads to rub it in that other people can raise them and I apparently can't. . .
I once had 10 Turkens, and. . . They all eventually died, either from disease, crop impaction, or intolerance to the constant cool, rainy weather.
If anyone has cold hardy, breeder quality Turkens - tell me.
Anyway, here's the only two that made it past 4 months:
Gallidia, died last month. She was alive the last time I posted these pics.
Way cool. I unexpectedly happened to get semi-laced out of mutts- dont have any laced birds or breeds. One gold like yours, one silver laced with stronger lacing. Because of those two I am going ahead with plans for laced NN... but also would like their tails to be laced, like in sebright and polish. I got a couple sebright roosters to breed with this hen:
I also got an obviously Wyandotte NN cross rooster out of what was supposed to be NN eggs, He looks probably silver penciled.... may use him to see if I could get pencilled or even laced NN with the Wyandotte style lacing- black tails.
Would love to stay in touch with you and anybody else doing laced NN projects?
