We have the results: 29 eggs yielded only three poults.; the tom’s fertility may be to blame. So, there you have it, chickeneers. No poults for me. Not this year. Next spring, I’ll be ordering early from Porter’s. My apologies for all the unfulfilled expectation.
Many, many thanks to Tricia of Tricott Dairy for all her patience with this not-quite-newbie. I have to take the universe’s hint and put this particular dream away for a while.
