Well I can't say whether the quail are having any nesting success, but the turkeys are doing well as compared to recent years. I flushed a herd at least 12 fuzzy poults and a hen, of the back 40, the poults about 2-3#'s and capable of twenty foot flight and tree landings, accompanied by a group of about 6 half grown youngsters, probably 4-6#'s each, runners not flyers, but all together. Never seen that different size all together before. Obviously some early, some later, didn't see more than one hen, so must be some sort of adoption deal. All looked healthy.
