Turkey poults

Unread postby Black Squirrel » Thu Jun 23, 2011 1:31 am

I haven't seen one single brood of turkey chics yet, here in NE WI. Anybody been seeing young ones? Wonder if the spring weather was tough on them.

If a "poult" ???? is a group of young ones, seen (3) groups in seperate areas all along the side of the road headed fishing last weekend.

This was in the Rhinelander and north areas.

Poult is a term for a tukey chick, or any poultry chicks, I believe.
Looks like there are a few out there.

I have not seen any yet :oops: My area had a bad winter kill, so I'm hoping there is lots of poults running around that I'm not seeing.

I have been seeing them, they look small for this time of year. Saw one about a month ago, that flew right up in the brush when I stopped on the road to take a pic. Didnt know how young they could fly, but I found out.

We had a wet spring too, and was starting to wonder how they did.

Speaking of quail, I actually saw 2 quail along the road a couple days ago.
