    I drove nearly 100 miles one way for these babies!! They were so hard to find and my daughter is just thrilled with them as they are her birthday present. Strait run, so we have no clue what we have yet, but they are just precious. They are happy and settled in with our 2 new RIR pullets [​IMG]

    By the way, the Orps came from Hink JC Mountain Poultry.

    Congratulations!! [​IMG] They are so cute!
    I agree that BO's are great. I have five 3 wk old girls and I love them. They are friendlier than any of my other babies. I can't even reach into the brooder box w/o them jumping up on me or my 3 yr old son. They love to just sit and cuddle.

    it was wonderful meeting you as well, your birds are beautiful and so friendly!! I can't wait to have these big enough to be in the yard to follow us around and love on!!
    Thanks also for taking the time to show the kids and I all your birds, it was very educational!! I don't think I have ever seen a turkey that big in my life!

    Oh, does it mean anything that 2 of the chicks are a bit darker than the other 2? Can ya tell I am trying to guess already the sex? I am guessing we have 2 boys and 2 girls, but hoping for 1 roo and 3 girls!!

    I will have to post pics in a few weeks and see what you all think!
