On Thursday ten adorable day-old turkeys arrived. Yep, now we are raising turkeys. Cadence, the family poultry farmer, decided 10 turkey poults - that's the proper name for a turkey chick - might be easier than 100 more chickens (She has 200 now, and she is frustrated by the damage they have done to her corn and lettuce!) These are Bronze turkeys--hard to envision that they will look like this by Thanksgiving! They make the cutest trilling, peeping sound--also hard to imagine it will sound like a gobble by Thanksgiving.
