On Tuesday we picked up our three turkey poults, and a Rouen duck. Here are the poults. We only got 3, because we still have some turkey in the freezer. We got the broad-breasted bronze this year:
Here is the duck. He’s cute now, but I’m not looking forward to his/her goings on in future years. We don’t plan to eat it:
Here is a handful of our hens. We have 2 roosters, and about 20 or so hens. The gold (buff orpington) rooster is in the foreground, and Big Ed (a light brahma) has a white body, black tail, and has his head down, above and to the left of the gold.
They’re doing well laying eggs for us finally; better when we DON’T suddenly realize Organique is missing, and the mad scramble to find her finds her madly scrambling eggs in the chicken house. But we haven’t had any of those days lately.. *sigh*
