Ed’s family was so happy with how well raising pigs turned out last year, they’ve decided to raise some turkeys this year, too. The babies are so cute in the photo above (from Mom Marie), where they’re about a day old.
Here’s one of the turkeys now, at about a week and a half old.
Ed holds the turkey inside his work area of the barn. They’re living here for now, under lights to keep them warm.
Here are the turkeys in their home. They’re trying to fly out of the pen now, but a screen across the top keeps them safe inside.
As the turkeys get older, they’ll be moved to a pen where they can free-range until Thanksgiving. I’m so excited that we’ll be able to add sustainably and humanely raised turkey to our table this year.
