Baby Chickens, Baby Guinea Fowl, Baby Peafowl, and Baby Turkeys

It’s always so much fun to watch the baby animals grow here at my Bedford, New York farm. Right now, the youngest residents include a number of turkey poults and keets, a peachick, and a chick.

I've been raising poultry and various other outdoor birds for quite some time. I love keeping chickens for their fresh, delicious eggs, but I also enjoy raising other birds and learning about the different breeds and varieties. Every year, we hatch many eggs to add to my flocks. I am fortunate to have the proper incubators and brooders where they can remain until they are big enough to go out into our "nursery" coop and yard, and then finally to the adult areas to join the others.
