Peeps Update

The chicks will be one week old on Friday, March 5th.  They have grown so much in the past 6 days.  Little wings are starting to grow, tiny tail feathers, they are even a bit taller!  First chick to hop into my hand was one of the Buff Plymouth Rocks (yellow ones).  She has done this for a few days now.  Her name is Auntie Bessie Marie.  They will be named after our aunts, my family from Massachusetts, so they are the Plymouth Rock girls…Dan’s family from Rhode Island (and having red hair) will be the Rhode Island Reds.  All shall have the middle name: Marie (family tradition, keeps the Marie Club growing).

Everybody who comes by the nursery to visit the chicks gets free marshmallow peeps.

Baby Chicks Arrive!

Turtle Creek Farm is pleased to announce the arrival of Baby Chicks!  They hatched on Friday at the McMurrary Hatchery in Iowa. We got the call late last night from the Post Office in Knoxville that they had arrived, so at 11:30 pm we picked them up.  Finally getting them back here by after midnight.  So here are our first baby photos:
