Poultry Perdicament

Went out to feed this morning and found the baby turkey dead. Ants I think. I checked on the other broody turkey and found her duck egg gone. This years turkey broody season was a wash.

We also lost more than half our chickens a little at a time for various reasons: neighbors dog, falling in the water trough when they were free ranging, and a lot of cannibalism. It’s strange how some groups are cannibals and others never do it. Just a waste of time, money and life in my opinion. All I can do is move forward. I am more set on more pens so they are in very small breeding groups. That way I can keep on top of it if the do start. I will have to replace some of my chickens I am sure. Frustrating.
