At the farm 2014

Our littlechicks always look forward to the arrival of the new baby chicks

All the baby chicks have arrived first batch in June 2nd batch in July. The turkeys are doing great.The first 7 weeks are alot of hands on work.We do not have any automatic feeders so we spend alot of time in the turkeys.

 The June Birds  have already been moved outside about 2 weeks ago and the 2nd group will be big enough to move outside in about a week.It always amazes me the difference in the birds within the first week outside. It must be the fresh air and sunshine because that is when they really start to grow and really feather out. Our birds are fed with feed we mix ourselves here at the farm we mix 3 tons at a time. They are also fed bales of hay so that they get the greens that are important in a healthy turkey. We raise 5000 turkeys and they will eat about 140 bales of hay between now and November
