Lady on U-tube says these are Kentucky birds, originals came from Pennsylvania so I will try my hand at them.

Grump, I hope they will breed, I have a couple incubators but would need a turner. I hope there are three toms and two hens, so far it looks good but I'll be sure when strutting time comes around.As they use to say on that tv show, as far as the toms, there can only be one! Thanks to the Editing I looked for the link, in the how to with no success, I have posted but for me it's some pretty elusive stuff.

Michael, My friend has an incubator (self turning). He had a total of 27 or so eggs hatch but He said they only lay eggs for a certian time and not like chickens that lay constantly. He only has one tom. His wife looks at the newly hatched chicks and can tell the sex. She's got a good average doing it.

Bob your putting a pretty good idea on the table, pun intended :D :D :D Grump I have yet to sort that end of it out, having two incubator's if I can't find an add on turner, I will wait to see if they will roost. (or what ever seems to be working at the time........a true moment of honesty :mrgreen: )

I am starting to see an egg a day on the ground in the turkey run, I give them to my dog( loves them) I guess it's time to open up the coop and see if she let any there. Now I need a lead on an egg turner compatible to my Incubator if they won't set. I haven't seen any sign of the toms mounting but they are strutting up a storm.
