The turkeys are mainly sleeping in the coop with the silkies, except for one night when they chose to sleep on our porch roof. And then at 4am when they were cold and hungry they peeped very very loudly. We now try and encourage them to go to bed with the silkies rather than perch on the roof as once they are up there we can’t get them down.
The turkeys though also happen to think that the house is their domain as well – perhaps it was because they spent their formative weeks in the dining room. Anytime the door or window is left open, in they come.
The adult silkies in the front garden are also all sitting on a clutch of eggs. Or rather Bobblehead and Maeve are sitting on eggs and the others are keeping them company. Despite promising to keep better records, I haven’t managed it again. They started laying and sitting quite erratically so there wasn’t a proper first day (this is my excuse and I am sticking to it). I am not sure if any chicks will hatch but I am checking them everyday or so, so we will just have to wait and see.
N.B. I am going to candle the rhea eggs in the incubator this evening as they have now been there for 7 days.
