    Update: My hatch rate has not been very good (learning curve) and I seem to loose a few that hatched that keep falling on their backs and can not upright themselves. The good
    news is I had and still have plenty of eggs to experiment with. At this late date I am still getting a few eggs. On the plus side those poults that made it pass 3 days of age are doing well.
    I did this on the fly this year, including setting up pens, getting incubators,etc, so hopefully next spring things will be more organized and I have learned by some mistakes I made.

    I should be set for next year keeping the hens and a couple of Jakes, plus the original 5 are doing great and will be in their prime next spring. I anticipate a few of this years Jakes
    will in up in the smoker for Thanksgiving (LOL)

    Not a good picture, but about a dozen young ones I have moved to outside cage.

    was actually thinking of you yesterday when some gobblers came thru the yard.
