Not being a horses rear, but just because you and your buddies have not seen something does not mean it does not exist or cannot happen.

. Might as well kill em,I havent ever seen one with poults.


A bearded hen has poults at the same rate as a non bearded hen.
So says the "experts". Have you ever seen one because i sure aint and neither has anybody that turkey hunts in my area. I'm not an expert by no means but i do know what i have seen or in this case not seen over the years.


as i said before, the bearded hen on my sister's place had poults both years that she was around.

Very true but I did not say that it does not happen.

Seen a bunch of them over the years. I see as many poults with them as I do with hens with no beards.

Have had 12 within range in 10 years but never pulled the trigger on one. Longest one I've had within range would have easily taped 9 inches but they are never thick. If they don't gobble and strut I really don't have any interest!
