    CherryChick Chillin' With My Peeps

    Apr 27, 2011
    Last week I took time off work to wait patiently for a call from the post office. Wednesday morning I got the call at 8am.
    I had lil babies waiting for me when I got there 5mins after they called.
    We ordered 5 Broilers and 15 EE ( unfortunately 2 passed away in the shipment process.) One must of been trampled to death and the other one had her intrales out. Very sad.

    Along with these lil fuzzy butts. We got three white bronze breasted turkeys and three ducks. I gave them the rest of the week to relax and let them be. This week I'm hoping to handle them more often so they become tame like our big hens now.

    I was really suprised how tame the tukeys were.....We haven't handled them much but when we do they like to sit on our shoulders and fall asleep. It's very cute.
    I will hopefully be posting pictures this evening.
