I put an ad on Craigs List for the baby turkeys that were hatching and also to sell turkey eggs. One phone call I received was from a couple who raises pigs so I bartered. I offered to hatch them turkeys for a couple of pigs that we could raise and later breed.
Papa Bear and I completed their pen and shelter and picked them up a few days ago. They are both Babcocks . The little white one has been named Miss Piggy and the black one is Kermit!
The goats have never seen such critters before and lined the fence. It was funny. They looked like an audience waiting on something to happen. I did entertain them for awhile. Miss Piggy had louse pretty bad on her so I tried to catch her and spray her with some medication but she was having none of it. I finally just sprayed the stuff at her as she ran by me until I got her good and wet with the stuff.
Great Nephew thought they were pretty cool little critters and spent most of the day in the pen with them. Hopefully this time next year we will have a bunch of Miss Piggy's and Kermit's.
