Big day out

The "babies", two turkey poults and 9 chicks that I hatched in my incubator, are growing bored of the brooder box. Whenever the screen is lifted they have a "play day".

So, with a warm spring day upon us I took them outside to the "tractor box".

They are 15 days old in these pictures. Another two weeks and they should be ready to go outside full time, weather permitting.

I wonder how many of the 9 will end up being hens?


  1. I take it you are counting on mostly hens. Then wouldn't nine be a great number?

  2. Yes, 9 would be great, but I'm not holding my breath. We'll see what happens! I've already got the 6 "big girl" hens that the hatching eggs came from, 6 more "teenager girls" that are already outside, so more hens would be great....


Thankx for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your little trip to the NV High Desert.
