    How lovely! Did your hen hatch them or did you use an incubator?

    Sorry I got sidetracked and haven't been online in awhile. Busy adding coops and outdoor runs, not sure why as the turkeys have taken over anywhere they want to go. They love free ranging and they are excellent foragers. :). Trying to upload new pics now.

    My Red Penciled Palm hen brought home 8 poults she hatched in the woods about a month ago. We built her a 4' x 8' pen in the chicken coop to protect them from the chickens and she is doing a great job raising them. My question is when can I let them out with the rest of the flock? The weather is so nice I hate leaving them inside.
