Turkeys and chickens

 

My chicks and turkey poults came today!  I ordered them through my local feed store.  25 black sexlink (layers), 50 cornish giant (meat) and 10 turkeys.  This is my first time raising turkeys so it should be interesting. 🙂  The first thing I notice is how quiet they are compared to the chicks!  If you have any tips for raising turkeys, I’d love to hear them!

  1. Oh, how cute! We went to a friends house and they had a baby duck, his bill was bigger than his head! 😀 He was really cute. 😀

    P.S. Do you name them?

    • Hi Naomi, no we don’t name them. There are too many layers that all look the same to give them names. The others look like each other too and are destined for the freezer. I’m not opposed to naming but I’d never keep them straight! 😆
