No, and survival of late-hatched birds tends to be very low. They either miss the peak time for food (insects, largely), or are unprepared for severe conditions later in the fall.

Have been following a young turkey and and hen for about 2 weeks. They young one probably hatched 2 weeks ago and is very late compared to most I see, which are about full grown. Must have been a very late hatch. Does this happen often?

Thanks,
Paul
