The Ultimate Babysitter

Waldo or "Wally" is the best turkey daddy ever.
He is protective without being overbearing, gentle without being a push-over.
He accepts everyone without question and patiently stands guard over everyone, alerting them to any potential danger, be it real or imagined.

We added a couple of Blue Slate cross poults to our turkey family a few weeks ago, with the idea of growing a hen or 2 into being breeder mamas for next year.  Their offspring, because they will be really mixed up crosses, will hopefully be larger than the Royal Palms, and will be market turkeys for Christmas 2014.

Wally watches over these three "adopted" babies as if they were his own.

What an awesome dad he is :)
