We got our new baby egg layers today along with our replacement turkeys!
Ugh. Turkeys. Ugh.
What am I looking at there? Barred Rocks? Where did you order them from?
Yes, Barred Rocks. This batch and the last came from Myers. We used them because they are here in Mississippi. We’ve also used Murray McMyurray and the Cackle Hatchery for previous egg layers and our first quail flock.
Ugh on the turkeys is right! But the ones that are thriving are so cool!
They are. Early on their little chirp sounds like a blaster from Star Wars. I really wish you the best with the new little poults. We seem to have chicks down pat but poults threw us for a loop this year.
Thanks! Good luck with your processing this weekend, too!
Cute new arivals 🙂
so fun! we tried to do turkey eggs and it didn’t go well at all. not a one developed after we received them. 😦 working on a new plan. have fun with the new babies!
