Turkey Babies!

Alaina hatched some of my turkey eggs.  She had a 100% hatch rate!  YAY!  5 out of the 6 turkey poults have the Bourbon Red markings and one has the Narragansett coloring.  It is hard to see all of the turkey babies in the top picture because they are mixed in with her pheasant peeps.  The three light colored ones against the back wall are some of the light colored (red) turkeys and the second baby against the side wall is the darker turkey baby.  
 Here is a close up picture of a light colored turkey baby.
Right now she has 6 more eggs in the 'bator and they still have a few more days before they are due to hatch.

Congrats on your poults! Great hatch!!

We had 6 Bourbon Poults hatch and then a guy owed me two, so we have 8 Bourbon red poults right now and 7 Royal Palm poults. :)

I'm trying to do better posting on my blog - but having difficulty finding things to post about LOL If I can find my camera cord, I'll just photo blog farm stuff!
