    I don't and never have had turkeys, but I assume that they will mate considering how different breeds of chickens will mate. And I can't answer your second question.

    All heritage varieties can interbreed, you will only have troubles if you try to breed heritage to broad breasted, a heritage Tom can probably breed a broad breasted, but not the other way around, the breast are too big.

    Glad my chihuahuas gave you a laugh. I have to thank @drumstick diva for the calendar suggestion. I am always looking for ways to raise money for the Humane Society. Here is another picture that will make you laugh.....my granddaughter was on the other end of the tea party. [​IMG]

    It is because turkey hens don't just accept any male, that I asked this question. Roosters just force the girls but turkeys seem to court each other and pair off. When I separated my original couple, the hen changed her attitude towards me. She used to follow me everywhere and eat out of my hand but after I took her mate away, she became afraid of me.

    Maybe you already found the answer to the ovation question? If not, maybe this will help:

    Home page, right hand side, toward the bottom, shows Top Rated Posts and there is a "more" link.
    Clicking that "more" link will take you to a detailed screen that shows Top Rated Posts for (you choose) Last Day, 7 Days, 30 Days, All Time
    If you click on say, All Time, you'll see the #1 Top Rated Post has to do with the Buy-Sell-Trade Rules

    Does that give you the info you wanted on ovations?

    Oh my. I just found this thread... because I seem to follow NFC around like a shadow. (What's up with that? I think we are in the same time zone or something- just down the street actually)
    ANYWAY... the chi-wa-was are adorable!
    What a great sense of humor.[​IMG]
    I love the thread.
    Please keep adding to it,
