Sunday saw a hen with 7 poults that could not have been more than 2 days old . No wonder the Toms were still strutting last  month .

The last 4 or 5 years, I have had anywhere between 3 and 5 hens coming through our yard every summer, along with their broods.  Once there were 3 hens with 12 chicks coming pretty regularly.  This year, I have seen a total of three hens, 0 chicks.  they do come in fairly regularly, as our mulberry trees were full of berries, and the turks do like mulberries, but no chicks at all.

Those poults are about 3/4 size now and are looking like they will have a chance to get through winter alright .  @--0--0118
