Staying out of it...this time.

Poults could be showing anytime now all over the SE, and that would be pretty normal. Anytime after May 1st it is possible, anytime prior to May 1st is highly unlikely.

I saw a chupacabra yesterday FWIW.

Just got word of two large groups of poults today on one of our leases. Great news to hear, considering last 2 yrs hatch/floods

How big were the poults? If they are bigger then puffball sized, insert me rolling my eyes.

Amazing how poults are popping everywhere in TN, however there are no confirmed sightings anywhere in the South (Miss, GA, Bama) yet. That makes any poult sightings suspect, considering historical date which supports poults hatching 2-4 weeks sooner at points further south than point here in the pseudo north.

I had a hen with 4 poults cross the road in front of me on Wednesday a mile down the road from my place in Hickman County.

Oh, wait - I didn't get a picture of it so I'm sure someone here will say I was mistaken and it was probably just a buzzard crossing the road with 4 doves in tow.......

How big were the poults? No one ever seems to answer this follow up question...

If there were only 4 of them, then I feel sorry for the population in your area, and your hunting in the future. If there are 4 now, there might be 1 make it, if you are really lucky.

Body-wise, they were about the size of doves (they were probably 5 or so days old, I would guess - they didn't look freshly hatched).

The only reason I have a decent population of birds in my area is there are very few turkey hunters in my immediate area. There are a ton of bobcats, possums, armadillos, etc. around that I am sure take a heavy toll on the eggs and young birds.
