The Turkey poults, they love their temporary perch. They can tight rope walk along it then use it to fly to the top of the plywood that is the wall of the pen.
The Blue Swedish ducks. These are the biggest of the ducklings and the quietest. We liked them after watching a P Allen Smith youtube video about them.We will be calling one of the duck's Mavis Ann after the star of the video. Of course there will be Olaf, Sven and Heidi! Right now the entire group runs up to us when we call Duck Duck Go!
So there it is, a brief poultry tour. They are such fun and we are pleased with our selections so far. Construction on the chicken house inside the tobacco barn is going fairly well, some snags but with innovation and missmatched tin roofing we are making a secure area. The use of the roofing sheets buried into the ground will keep wood away from the manure and moisture and should keep digging predators out. The outer barn walls are not secure yet and replacing the rotted sections is a huge job that we will have to do in stages.
Now have a great day and stay safe. It is raining here and that is making it a very fall like day. The leaves are just starting to turn.
