Noisy poults
« on: June 30, 2014, 06:31:13 pm »
I have two turkey poults about 4 weeks old with a broody pekin.  Everything is fine until about 7pm when the poults start an incessant peeping noise which makes the broody run up and down the run.  A run neraby with another broody and a chick have already gone to bed by then so I wonder if the hen is reacting to 'teenage' poults who won't go to bed when told.  Has anyone else experienced this? For the rest of the day the poults are really quiet.

l hope my turkeys dont do this in a couple of weeks when they are 4 weeks old.  My poor hen is confused enough without that happening.
