Upon returning home from our most recent "wild beach" trip, we discovered that one of the 5 turkey eggs in the incubator was just minutes away from hatching. We could hear the baby in there peeping frantically, and could see it's wet body struggling to push and kick the egg cap off it's back. Ami held the struggling chick in her hand and patiently waited until POP! went the egg and out came the turkey. :o)

The camera flashed just in time to catch the look of amazement on her face. The turkey baby is happily following it's mother around now, along with the other 10 of it's siblings (including the other 4 that were in the incubator). Ami says she will never forget the day the turkey hatched right in her hand...
