  1. Not wishing to be a pedant – but do you mean fledged? Not hatched?? Isn’t fledging when they fly for the first time?

    • You know, I thought it was wrong as soon as I wrote it, and then didn’t go back to check. You are absolutely correct, and I have changed it. Thanks for the catch — please ALWAYS correct me when I screw up.

  2. How did you get the fertile turkey egg? Because from everything I’ve read about turkeys, they’ve have all the instincts to breed bred out of them. Well, maybe not so much the heritage breeds, but the commercial breeds certainly.

    Congratulations on the poult.

    • We’re not exactly sure what breed this is, but it is one of the heritage kinds that can still fly and reproduce. The Standard Bronze breed, which we’ve had in the two previous years, are like that, but I think these birds are a little smaller and a little browner. It’ll be a surprise.
