Q: If you call a large turkey a gobbler what do you call a small one? A: Goblet.
So now, we have 10 little poults! When I posted the blog yesterday we only had the five. And honestly we didn’t expect any to hatch today…I was on the phone and all of a sudden I heard some peeping coming from the incubator, aka Inus, yea we named it. BTW we got the best incubator EVER! It is a cabinet incubator that has three rows of turning trays and the bottom level stays level but is a hatcher so after the 25 day of incubation you put the eggs down in the hatcher, allowing the little guy or gal get situated and start to pip its way out. Well, like I said we didn’t have any turkeys that were due to hatch, or so we thought. Well I maybe I was hearing things, but I checked Inus for the possibility of a ‘lil turklet and found a cute little wet baby turkey lookin’ at me like “get me out of this thing mom!” So then, I looked close at the batch of eggs that were put in Inus at the same time and low and behold they were all pipping! Now I have a total of 10, and we think one may be albino!
Also, we sold Dolly, so she is no longer on the market for other long beards 😉
