Surprise poultry came today very pleased
« on: May 16, 2012, 01:32:35 PM »
Got my surprise box of poultry this morning 42 total, out of those 2 are ducks, 2 are turkerys, and 2 are still a mystery might be quail of some sort. The rest are mix of different type/breed chickens. I am excited about the turkeys they appear to be black spanish turkeys which won't be for eating :) they are considered a rare breed turkey. Its bugging me that I can't figure out what the 2 mystery ones are

where do you get a surprise box of birds?   :-D

Congrats on your new little ones.  They sound happy.

Looked up your exotic two.  Sounds like the boys identify themselves early.
