We had a group of turkeys hatch around August 10, last. It is amazing how quickly these little dudes grow, and at the same time, how one can see which one is more aggressive than the others. There is one of them that is plain and simply gotta show everyone who is boss!! Get a load of how he is intimidating another one, and then as he got a little bit older, he began to actually stalk and fluff out his feathers, I bet he is gonna be a big one, and oh yes, so yummy. Have that most wonderfully awesome day, Cindi
August 19, at 10 days old, how sweet, still wanting to be on their mother's back
September 7, shy of one month old, the intimidation beginning
September 26, now they are about one and one half months old!!! Really getting to be a big nasty!!! The hen closest, at the front is the turkey that was hatched on April 1, she is almost as big as her mother. She is a sweetie and a half, she is very friendly and helps to take care of the little ones too! She is a beautiful bird!!!
