This year I was determined to hatch out some turkey poults, even if it meant using an incubator. I've been calling them our "backup" eggs because in the past, our turkey hens have been spotty with their nesting habits and have failed to hatch us out any poults.
In the process, I've put together a comprehensive guide covering the full range of need-to-know information, from raising to incubating to hatch assisting, and I would like to share it with you.
Whether you are just starting out in your backyard chicken keeping adventures or you're already an old hand at it, one thing is for certain: At some point along the way, we all find ourselves facing the sadness of losing "one of the flock."
As if that isn't hard enough, then comes the pressing issue of what to do with the body once a feathered friend has flown the coop, as it were.
