This is a baby, just hatched that day, bronze wing turkey. We recently had two on loan for a week.
They are very easy to tame, and extremely social creatures.

Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever realized that this is what baby turkeys look like. What an amazing transformation they go through as they grow.

Matt, it’s true. When the farmer fist showed them to me, and declared them turkeys, I simply didn’t believe him.
I like these bronze wing babies, but the regular sort (I don’t know what they are called, but they are plain, generic looking white), come out a very delicate, pale yellow. If possible, they look even less turkey-ish then these. It’s a good thing they go through such a transformation to ugly, or I would have difficulty sending them back to be, uh, gobbled up. (Sorry, I am rolling my eyes at myself, even).
Thanks for your visit. 🙂
