    I have been trying to post pics to update you all on my growing turkey "babies" lol. I removed the baby BSL chicken that I had with them because she needed to go back out with the chickens so then they turkey poults were screaming non stop lol, in the past I have put big stuffed animals in the coop with baby chicks to keep them quiet, I know its weird but trust me it works lol. I do not know if it is the size of the stuffed animal being bigger than them that makes them comfy or perhaps its just the extra company in the brooder but whatever it is it works lol.

    Here are a couple pics

    No they didnt peck it at all, in fact they thought the thing was their mommy lol. They slept on it and played with it but I never saw them bite it once, guess they dont bite their "mommy" even if it is a elephant lol

    Farmerboy if you are asking what the turkeys are I am not 100% sure honestly, the person I got them from said Black Spanish but the BS babies are black so these are looking more like Bronze or Bronze Cross turkeys
