Turkey day on the farm!

Dale picked up the turkey poults this morning from the hatchery for distribution to backyard producers, 4Hers and FFA members.

The turkeys' high-rise condos.

White poults, the breed most commonly used for commercial meat production.

Bronze poults, also used for meat production, but their dark pin feathers aren't always attractive to shoppers.

Altogether, Dale picked up more than 600 baby turkeys today to deliver to local farms. That's one more reason they call him Turkeyman.
