We are having beautiful weather here in Northern CA!  Temps are in the 60's, and even though I know that Old Man Winter will return with a vengence I am enjoying watching the trees budding, listening to the birds singing and now the Turkeys...

Midget White Turkey Poults Hatch

Blog: Flip Flop Ranch   -   Saturday July 03, 2010   -   By Serina

These Eggs Rock

Blog: The Call Again Farm Journal   -   Tuesday April 21, 2009   -   By Laura

Exciting news!  I saw the first of the turkey eggs rocking this morning!  Inside the egg, a few days before hatching, the chick (in this case, the baby turkey, or poult) breaks into the air cell at the big end of the egg and starts breathing the...
