Turkey poults

Tivon took this photo of Argus, the proud father to be.

Our turkey hen hatched out 4 chicks, as turkeys have such a reputation for losses when raising their chicks we decided to intervene and brought them into the house and put them under a heat lamp.  One had been trying to hatch for a couple of hours, it was fine the next day and we were hopeful, but we did loose 2 in the first few days.
As the weather was very calm and warm they were brought outside for short spells.

Alfie wasn't to sure what to think of them.

 After about a month they were moved out to the big tunnel.

 Where they continue to grow.

and grow....
