Here are the turkey's out in the front yard. They graze a lot and make happy turkey noises all the time they are out and about.
This is the tub of Ginger, we are keeping it in the utility building at night but it has done exceptionally well here in the climate!
A question....if the chickens eat the herbs do they taste better when you roast them?
Here is a Royal Palm hen...she was sure she was hidden until I talked to her and then she gave a turkey sigh and, after eating some thyme, came out from behind the buckets!
Here are the crazy keets, they eat as a group, run as a group, fly as a group but still get separated at odd times. The shorter ones get lost in the grass but you cannot stop them from going everywhere!
The art of nailing into season oak! This is some of the original nail work we found when we started to work in the tobacco barn. Hey we would never nail like that!
Humn this is some of the nail work the next people will find...we now drill pilot holes when we work at nailing things to the seasoned oak poles and planks!
The turkey's found the brace's at the fence corner to be perfect for roosting and preening after a busy day eating Asian beetles and the like!
We wondered which turkey would make it to the roof from the deck railing first, of course it was the Little Royal Palm Hen, she is always around and will sleep at your feet. She is also a superior look out!
Ahh the current version of our duck pond, a storage bin for under the bed, The ducks can get in and out easily and the turkeys like to drink the duck slurry that is left after the ducks have a 'Spa' session. Go figure on that!
Here is one box of peppers we did not buy. These are the peppers we harvested off the heirloom pepper plants we brought with us from Virginia.
And last but not least a view of the poultry, Ralph had given them a squash and some carried off peices to the far side of the pen to eat, some regarded it as peasant food and ignored it and other pecked at it for hours. Even the ducks came over to see what it was.
I hear Ralph calling, or is it the thought of a warm and buttered bread Pretzel? Have a great day and God Bless you all!
