    Your not too far away. I go up to Elysburg every other wknd with my kids and could be a transport if you need be to the flat lands lol
    What if she saw a chicken along side the road on the way?
    Awesome!
    These classes I arranged. The classes they have regularly I have no control over. So these fell on my shoulders. [​IMG] And if I say so myself the first went well and was better than expected.
    I know you too, looking at the new ones.
    Hmmm...I got lost somewhere in the woman talk
    Exactly!
    Excellent!
    You get blamed for things? Better you than me lol

    Turkeys need higher protein than chicks. If you can't get turkey starter, gamebird starter is also high protein. Especially true if you're raising broad breasted ones for meat. I can't remember if turkeys can have medicated starter or not. I know waterfowl aren't supposed to. If you're riasing meat birds, sexing probably won't matter. Both wil get big. If you're getting BBW's or BBB's, with the intent of raising one for Thanksgiving, wait til summer to get poults. They will be dinosaur sized by t-day if you get them now..

    I've been using the 24% chick starter for turkeys and ducks. It works just fine, no angel wing or anything. You don't need to spend $35 on a 50lb bag of turkey/gamebird feed if you cannot find it or wish not to spend a fortune on it.

    Betta - thanks for the info. I was just at tsc and the Dumor chick starter was listed as chicken, Turkey, quail and maybe other stuff. That was the 24% starter.

    Is it bad my coffee table is taken up by two hatchers and there is a container of wine fermenting next to it?
