    Has anyone seen any poults yet. It is getting about time for some to start showing up.

    I fear for our 2017 hatch.

    I haven't seen any yet. Things are pretty grown up and they'd be hard to see unless you stepped on 'em. I did see a hen with poults on the last weekend of spring season in '16 so I'm sure there are a few on the ground. I'm with Turk, it's been a wet cool May to this point. Hope that turns around or 2019 may be kinda quiet.

    I was just thinking about this yesterday. Weather has been terrible so far but by the looks of the forecast the wet weather may be over. Hope so anyway. I had a great season but it was an unusual one in many aspects. Hopefully this year's hatch will be good and 2019 will have lots of eager two year olds.

    I saw a hen yesterday close to the road an next to the tree line. She had her wings out like she was covering poults

    Had a hen in the backyard yesterday with one little one following her around. Just the single little one make me think it was not a good year for a hatch.

    Makes me think that coon or possum missed one.

    I saw 2 separate hens yesterday with some.
    one hen had around 10 with her and the other as close as I could tell was around 5. both groups were about the size of a quail.

    I've been watching a hen behind my house for the last three weeks, she comes out about 8am feeds around a little then disappears till evening and then does the same thing. I'm pretty sure she's setting on eggs some where close by. It's been a wet spring , I hope she's able to hatch a bunch .
