Around 12 or 14 but there was 2 hens. Lots of rain in June is usually bad for the game bird population and that's what we've had her, LOTS of rain. Hasn't been to cold so that helps.

I saw a hen with 6 poults last week here in Central Okla. Later that day I saw a group of 10 mature birds that had 5 toms that will be perfect come April! :thumbsup:
The good old days are now!

Saw a hen yesterday with some poults that couldn't have been much more than 2 weeks old. Rainy spring/early summer has been hard on them.

Haven't seen any poults yet..BUT! I have been getting taunted by this small flock that lives along the route I take to work...Good sized tom and about 5-6 hens....They laugh at me...tourturing my dreams and cackling as I drive past.. And they never leave the little housing development that they roam around...Now if that isn't hell... :mad:
If it flies...It might not die, but by God it will get a damned good dodging workout!!!

Falln, it will be even a longer hell if you don't start seeing some poults in that group. Maybe the hens have them stashed away in the bushes!!
