Talkin' Turkey

Something new on the farm - turkeys! We have never tried to raise meat poultry on the farm, because we've never had anyone to "process" them in the end, but circumstances have changed, and here we go!


First, I had to build a pen. So from this:

(the old pheasant pen...a 4-H project...)


To this:



With old or green lumber, no power tools, no concept of level, and no directions...it's fantabulous! Or at least Madison and the poults think so...



That's one Narragansett, and three Bourbon Reds. Sex unknown. At least for now...

These guys were the first installment on the new career (more about that coming), and a new "mentor" for the farm, and well, ...you'll see.

Wow, the turkey pen looks great, so professional, and very predator proof. Good job! Now what is this business venture praytell? Inquiring minds want to know.

And hey, you wonderful woman you, thank you for the eggs that surprisingly arrived at my doorstep this morning! They are very welcome and appreciated, especially since we are only getting anywhere from 2 - 6 a day, including ducks, and with six people living here, that doesn't quite work. Thanks so much!!!
