Baby chicks

These baby chicks were hatched just a day ago. We're not sure what breed they are. The cows were in the chicken pen eating grass and one of them dropped a pile. Barb accidentally stepped in it. Good thing she has rubber boots on.

Other important birds of note are the Pukeko and Tui. The Pukeko like to eat the chickens's feed as well as steal the eggs and baby chicks. Today, we are going to scope out some wild turkeys that hang about during chicken (chook) feeding time, with an eye toward catching one for Thanksgiving dinner. Darin says he'll clean it.
