Jody, oh that is funny. Yes, that silly little chick that is being raised by the turkey mammas is a delight. It has all the antics of the poults, but antics of the chickens. While the poults are pecking at the grass and stuff, the chick is digging like the chickens do, dig, dig, back up and look at what has been dug up. It is funny. There are numerous other things that it does too that the poults don't do, or vice versa. It still jumps on the mothers' backs, pushes the bottom of the turkey hens when it gets cold and climbs under the wings, pokes its head out from under the turkey mammas when I come to look at them in the evening when they are all huddled under the mammas too. Those little poults are so curious and nosey. I see the mammas all huddled up with their little babies beneath them. But when they hear me talk, one by one, each little head comes out from under these mammas somewhere, and all you see is the head and eyes looking at you, wondering what you are doing in their space. Oh how I love the life on the farm, with all the little babies, just lovin' their lives.
Beautiful day, beautiful life, and most of all, love our life we live. Cindi
