18/04/15 - Buff chick first to hatch

Our first Buff turkey chick hatched today and it I am absolutely delighted as it is healthy and strong.  This is such an important event given the critically low numbers of this delightful variety.  Excitingly there are a few more Buff turkey eggs pipping as I type, and at last candling all the other eggs from this group appeared fertile. 

 

This is as good a start to the season as we could have hoped for, and hopefully by the end of the year we will have taken the first steps towards saving these turkeys.  It is a great start.
