    If, by re-populating, you mean can they reproduce offspring, yes, Royal Palms can breed and hatch chicks.

    I think I remember seeing two of mine strutting around a week old. Do you just have the two? I have 5, still think I have the two gobblers

    I didn't mean to offend anyone or any "laws" of the forum, but I really wish that the mods wouldn't delete the entire reply. Sometimes you would like to re-read your reply to see what may have "not been helpful".

    And no, that is not a jab at a Mod.

    Unless you can vent sex (which is something I keep thinking I should try to learn) you can't really tell the sex until they get about breeding age. The males will get bigger snood bumps and thicker legs but you've gotta have enough of them to really compare to see who's bigger and who's smaller.
