    Hello all. My name is Amy, I joined last year but have never introduced myself or ever posted. I love BYC!! I have learned so much on this site and it has helped my chickens substantially . I currently have 3 golden palm turkeys (1 tom and 2 hens) in the spring they became broody and hatched only one baby out of 17 eggs. Unfortunately the little guy died the next day [​IMG] So I decided after that I will buy an incubator and try to hatch that way next time they are laying. So since spring they have not laid any more. Building them a larger enclosure and a better roosting shed hope that helps them out. I also have chickens an acquaintance had to move and gave me their mixed flock ( 3 golden comet hens with 1 roo, 1 barred Rock roo , 5 sex link hens). I also have 3 Marian hens and one dorking/Marian mixed roo.. My hens all were broody at the same time my Maran's hatched three adorable babies this year! And my new mixed flock hatched 5 but one of the new mama hens killed the first hatched chick and the rest survived.. I am still very new to the world of raising poultry but have been reading and applying new found knowledge from this site to fine tuning my flocks.

    I have 2 male turkeys they are typical teenagers now. They fight like you wouldn't believe, and they. Have even killed 2 hens..... They are so beautifully ugly. Not sure what to do with them.
