    Victor's 2 new girlfriends. He'll have to wait a while longer, but I think he will be pleased in the long run. They are very pretty little girls. [​IMG] 1 1/2weeks old as of today Blue Slate poults.....

    Quote:kewl okay jus t making sure if there was a visable way or not to sex them without having to vent sex. I hate vent sexing but i know how to do it jus thoping there was another way for turkeys when I do eventually hatch them.

    Hey Harp, are turkeys like chickens and 2 hens for 1 tom is a good thing? Or will it cause problems?

    you can run up to 8 hens per tom if you like. We run 5-6 hens to a tom and so far this year have had all but 1 egg not fertile.

    I thought 1 or more would be ok. I was only going to keep one but now I'm way too attached and could never pick which one to rehome. Didn't take long did it? They are both so sweet and spoiled already. I can't leave the room without them crying. The minute I walk back into the room the go back to milling around quietly. They love the run around in the den and I pick them up and cuddle them continuously. I know, my fault, but they are just too cute.
