    That is a helpful series of snaps.

    It is good they are being well cared for before they're well done.

    Help!! I have 2 baby turkeys that are 2 days old and are not walking. they lay and sleep but will kick their legs and go around in circles. I need to know what I need to do or if they are crippled. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Place this in a separate thread and you'll get answers. I wish I could help, but can't.

    Good looking turkeys! I have some standards and some BB's that are supposed to be the same age but I can barely tell the difference in them. I was wanting to grow them out side by side and watch for the changes.

    Wow, thanks silkiechicken.....what a great diary. I was wondering about how long to grow mine out to 10/12 pounds. I know each breed grows a little different...but I am looking about 1 Sept now. Thanks again!

    I wanted a turkey, but someone told me that turkey's generally are NOT friendly to have around.. like geese. Is that true?

    These pictures are WONDERFUL!! That is a great looking bird you have there.
