    Thanks guys!
    I always think their eyes are a little strange -- so big and dark, with no reflection at all, a little like "dead eyes". But they stay that way, even when grown.

    I sure am admiring them!!! Super cute. My husband and I were out riding bikes around the neighborhood and there's a house a few streets over where I always stop and peek through the bushes at their parakeet aviary and I saw they added a turkey pen on the side of their house, I'm so excited! (we live in the middle of Phoenix, so this is definitely a rare thing) I want to go talk to them about them because I LOVE turkeys. Congratulations on your new babies!!

    I counted the turkey babies today when their mama got off the nest and there are 12 little ones!!! Wow. I'm thrilled that there are so many.

    yipeeee! yay for you!

    those little ones are just the dickens! my only two poults are in with the chicks i got from Ideal. i think they are a little confused by all the flippin' and flappin' and twittering.
