Turkey Tales

We had an interesting early morning phone call this morning.  Our post office called at 6:30 A.M. to say that our turkey chicks had arrived.  So...off we went to pick up our brood.

In case you don't know much about poultry chicks, they're not exactly the most intelligent animals.  You have to show them their food and water and sometimes make them drink and eat.  Here Andrew and Emily are "helping" two of them get their first drinks.

Andrew is our turkey guy.  He spent a lot of time today regulating their temperature.

Two of his feathered friends.  He has a couple favorites. 
 These will be white when they get their feathers.  
Amazingly, they look bigger now, 12 hours later,
  than they did when we picked them up this morning.
