Here are our new turkeys. They don’t get to roam free, but the turkens are working hard to dig them out. Sweet little guys currently. Hope I can fatten them up in time for the holidays. It will be an interesting experiment to see how they do in this setting.
Notice all the apple carcasses? We are always overrun with fruit flies in the summer because of all the fruit trees. This year, the chickens are doing a good job keeping up with the dropped apples. Boy are the eggs good right now. As an added bonus, we don’t feel like the fruit flies are going to carry the house away. This is pretty great in my mind. I feel bad because we like to take the dropped apples to my brother’s pigs, but their share will definitely be smaller this year. There are still plenty of bird picked ones on the trees.
