  2. Thank you, Burstmode. I realize that perhaps if you have not recently fallen so deeply in love with baby turkeys, that it may not be the most exciting picture, but I appreciate having someone to share it with 🙂

    Who wouldn’t be smitten – that is the cutest chicky photo I think I’ve ever seen. I would never have imagined that turkey chicks would be so jolly adorable.

    But then they grow up into … well I won’t go there.

  5. Fee, hmmm, every scenario where I imagined taking one of the adorable babies home, involved bringing it back again when it was looking and behaving more like a real turkey!

    Ruby, thanks, it’s a pleasure to have you visit here 🙂

  6. Not that it’s a competition, but my family raises turkeys that get between 40 – 50 pounds. Are you raising these little guys and if so, how big do they get?

  7. Cole, I’d be pleased to make it a competition, if they were my turkeys 😀

    But they belong to a farm we visit. We live a short toss from the Central Business District of our city, so each week I drive the children out to spend a day in the country and get a dose of reality. A very tolerant pair of farmers let us bother the daylights out of them while they work, and the turkey chicks belong to them.

    I don’t really know pounds (we do kilograms and grams, here), but the parents of the turkeys are big enough to look… menacing. I wouldn’t want to mess with them. Do you have white turkeys or the traditional colourful greys?
