Huh....thanks Dheltzel....I thought peas were warm weather birds.....learn something everyday! :D

Ralph, that description is priceless! Did you really order one? I don't think I've seen a bird with the small eyes....if you can get a shot, I'd be interested. This baker is an "event baker". She does things like wedding cakes. She has a commercial space, but not open to the public. She loves to use the turkey eggs because they add a lot of moisture to her cakes. She heard I had hens through a mutual friend and contacted me about buying them. She said she'd buy all I have to sell. She has a few other "suppliers", but admits they are hard to find. I think you could market your extra eggs....

MNmom....how many turkeys are you starting out with?? I want to hear about your plans!

How is Snitch doing? Are you letting her out of the cage to exercise daily? Set up a chair next to her so you two can bond!!

Hey Feedman! Did you get some of that ice last weekend? Was wondering about you. I just don't think I can handle a tom with just the two girls. I don't think I'd ever have enough hens to make a tom happy. Did you ever get that Narri trio??

Hey Rjohn....glad you hopped over! We have a good time and I know the experts over here have taught me a bunch!! Love the pics of your flock. Wow, you really have a lot of wild hens showing up! Guess they like those exotic colored toms vs the native guys...??

Holm can hold his own with these guys! Its funny tho!!

RJohns....you need to go over to Porters Heritage Breed Turkeys site and play with his calculator. You punch in the tom and the hen and it tells you genetically what they will produce. Its addicting....but so worth it! Heck...I can hang on that site for a few hours just drooling over the turkey pictures. IN FACT....Ralphie has a few birds featured on his site!! That's right....Ralphie has a few famous birds!!

Didn't mean to scare you....but reports of hens starting to lay are popping up all over. Not in overwhelming numbers and spread all over the states. For some odd reason I sort of keep track of it. Last year at this time there were many more hens laying. This year...they seem slower to start. Many more hens are "Squatting".... so we have a bunch thinking about it!

Yes Finnie....that turkey sperm stays viable for quite awhile!

Feedman....I wanna Narri hen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holm, we'll all come to your wedding! :gig.

MNnice....my Bourbon hen is a hoot! She has to get her beak in the middle of anything I'm doing! She is also the most vocal. She doesn't hesitate to let you know what she thinks. And she is my little fashion critic. I don't think you can go wrong with any heritage breed! I'd keep an eye on what Mr. T is producing and JJ. Those are both very nice toms and I'd look for something from either one in hopes they pass on their sweet temperaments.

And what the heck! Annie is molting!!!
