    I don't remember if they can or not, but I don't. Buy some unmedicated, trust me, they'll use up the 50lb bag without a problem. I don't do anything special for mine. Treat them just like chickens here, except if incubating, raise humidity to rainforest levels during hatch.
    If doing BB turkeys, spend the least amount of time with them possible or you'll end up with pets. Get those hamster water bottles for them to drink from. They are sensitive and it seems like looking at them wrong can kill them. Don't free-range until they're bigger, I lost some that way (fully feathered), and it halved my flock size (predator). Keep a heat lamp on them for longer than you think is necessary. My big girl is 20lbs+ of muscle, but she still gets cold very easily.

    OK guys. I need a total who's coming to the class. Sallyx2, Heather x2, Edx1?, Tinax2, who else is coming? Missy are you guys coming? Was on the phone with Stacy @ the Dept of Ag and getting names so she can get a tally with the class being next week.

    How high is your fence? I am thinking of an open top for a a new run (but not for the new gang!) for the same reason (more space), but I worry for two reasons. Is a six foot fence high enough. and are the hawks that are around big enough to get my chickens? IDK how big a hawk has to be to go after a full grown chicken. So tell me what you do, because I am very interested.

    You know, I sent my application and check in last year at the end of May and I JUST heard back from Stacy this month. I have to question the system they have, for sure. I'd still like to do my CPT training, but I can not go to Harrisburg for it. Tunkhannock is closer.

    In her defense, I was either going to call 911 or Sally. I looked around.... no signs of chickens, peeps, eggs, or fermented feed. My thumb was ready to dial Sally!

    I'm near Bloomsburg, at the moment we have a mix flocked of EE, 1 RIR, 1 SLW covered by 1 Ameraucana roo, 1 EE roo, and a mixed Brahma roo. I'm trying to find homes for 2 of my roos. My girls want to hatch some eggs(set on the 13 of March after we come back from vacation in TN).
