Two different sets of babies went out on grass today--the veal calves and the turkey poults.
The turkeys are actually on half grass/half gravel so they can fill their gizzards with tiny pebbles to prepare them for grinding up greens to better digest them. They are still fed a non-medicated, high-protein starter mash and will be gradually moved on to full grass and a pelleted food.
The calves are running and kicking up a storm on their new home--nearly an acre! They are still being fed two big bottles twice a day.
