    How fun! I like the Slate myself. Toms are so beautiful though I'm not that picky. You're going to have to post pics!

    Ha, that's funny. I have heard that mama chickens still think that when the ducks hatch they are chickens. They panic when watching them go into water, lol. I'm sure the turkeys are going to be gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing some pics.

    Funny stuff. Lol. You just need to make sure she doesn't drown trying to get them out of the water. Although I've heard/seen that chickens can swim(youtube is so enlightening) I don't know if it's a self-taught skill or comes naturally. Lol. Wouldn't want to test the theory. [​IMG]
