    For all you chicken lovers out there , let me just say turkeys are wonderful. I have both and turkeys have so much personality. They are smart, alert for predators and so much to watch and enjoy. If you have the room, get some turkeys.

    I love them! They're so interesting and beautiful. I raised two, and sold them to a 4-H boy. I wish I still had them though, but a the time, my turkey tom (he was a beautiful Royal Palm) would not allow any newcomers to be around. I bought a trio of show quality Buckeye chickens, and he went after the rooster viciously. So that's why I rehomed them. I surely loved them though......I may get a few more in the spring, now that I'm not planning on getting any new chickens....

  6. I am located in Sioux Falls in the country... by a fenceline. Thanks. I am into motorcycles and birds also. Lets get back onto subject. I just keep them outside in their regular cages. The are provided with a heated water bowl and Dog houses filled with straw. That seems to do it for them.

    I got 3 BBwhites this spring and sadly they all got taken by a dog.
    1 early on and 2 just 7 weeks ago.
    I went out and got 3 bue slates and they are the opposite of the the white. they run and hide when I open the door :( I really miss my Minx and krism. they would come running to me any talk to me.
    I and still hoping that cinnamon and toast come around.
