    One of the turkey hens died while setting on her eggs. 5 of the 7 eggs she was on had chicks coming. I guess boredom does kill.

    Well, that sucks. Hopefully the others have good hatch rates.

    The funny part now is one of the two remaining hens who had quit laying, now has four eggs in that nest spot and we are hoping she will set too.

    Got home with the International water truck and pulled up by the chick house. Wife was over by the shop so I pulled the air horn chain to startle her and had another effect that was very amusing. Every chick went flying, stumbling or whatever into the house. Wife came over to find out how to do that near dark when she wants them in. LOL
