In Shawano County we've got a ton of birds by us. Seems like about the most I can ever remember having around. The 2015 spring season was excellent for # of poults per hen. Seemed like we had great survival year over year. Had a bit smaller brood sizes this year, but with the larger number of hens around to breed we are loaded with turkeys now.
There are two hens that come into my yard every other day or so in Marinette County. A month or so ago there were 10 poults with them, last weekend there were 7 left. They're about the size of a half grown grouse, what are the odds they will make it through the winter being this smalle this late in the year?
