And, as promised, we’ve got some pictures of the new turkey babies. The hatch was disappointing–only 17 of the 80 eggs hatched. And an eagle appears to have swooped down and grabbed one of the newbies as they left the turkey house. That’s life and death on a farm.
Still, they’re mighty cute little guys and they’re already out and about. Got a sec? We’ve got pictures.
Here are a couple of the new young ones out for their first stroll.
And here’s mom giving some bug-hunting lessons.
And another lesson in feeder etiquette.
Ok, so we know that nobody’s baby pictures are as adorable as your own, and we’ll leave it at that. Ah, but they do grow up so fast, don’t they?
If you stop by the farm gate you can see for yourself.
