The Brood in the Barn

From the country...

After an observant spring, watching the mating rituals of heritage turkeys and collecting countless eggs, the result is somewhat astounding! I have a brood in the barn of over 100 turkey poults. All these little gaffers came from my own breeding stock!

Hopefully with my limited (4 year) experience raising turkeys and my gathered research, this should be a successful year in the turkey business. Now the job is to raise them up, keep them happy and healthy, and put them out to pasture when the time is right. These birds will once again be available for Christmas.

How can something this fluffy and cute turn into this?
