    I just saw the 2 hens and pile of poults that I saw 3 weeks ago....

    I'm fairly certain every one of the poults is still running around!!!!!

    15 or 16 of them!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!

    We need more of that. I dont think I even had a hen attempt a nest on my place this year - or if one did, the nest didnt last long enough for me to notice a regular hen. Hopefully, many more around the state like you saw.

    Hunting buddy of mine says he say 2 hens with a big group of poults last week. Says 20+ large chicken sized poults. On another property close to where we hunt found out that two hens were hit on nests during 1st hay cutting. Also have seen 2 lone hens with 0 poults since late May. South west Arkansas where the coyotes, coons, skunks, possums and hogs are as thick as you will find anywhere in the state.

    I have game cam pics of some single hens - no poults. There could still be a few on the nest. I know we had a late hatch last year.
