    I have 3 that are 9 days old and very active and extremely vocal. What can I give them to keep them entertained? They quiet as soon as I get near them and they love pecking at my hands.
    I have the NCAA tourney on a radio near them and it seems to be helping. Music didn't help but talking does. Are they already spoiled?
    Does anyone know of a baby turkey pacifier??????

    honestly,put a baby rattle in there, they will peck at it and will make a noise (one with a ring, so the can carry it and chase each other)... and then the cycle repeats... maybe put a tv so they can watch the march madness

    Go drop a few crickets in with them. That will entertain both them and you.

    The rattle and DW's boombox, on talk radio, did the trick. No crickets in Michigan right now.
