A Winter video Photo Post

I hope this works...Our Turkeys are such fun and always around!

Two of the Royal Palm hens coming to the house to visit. Ralph had used the Dodge 4X4 to break trails...it was terrible to shovel because of the ice.  The Royal Palm are great turkeys, small so suited for smaller families  or couples. They are the most active and fly the best.

The trail breaking with the truck was good for the poor cabin fevered turkey's, they love to ramble and as soon as Ralph had got the trail to the house done they they came for a visit. Anyone who enjoys social critters, turkey's are a great choice [except for the poop]. They don't really liked being petted but they sure like to be with us.

This morning we had a convention out in the front of the buildings, there was a lot of quacking and gobbling going on. The poultry was so  happy it is getting nice again. The ducks found water running off the barn and dabbled in it then did some snow sliding and for the lack of a better word snow diving. They run their heads under the snow like they were in water then shake and preen like crazy.

I hope these videos entertain you. I am working on a series of Breed evaluation posts about the ducks and turkeys. We are glad we researched the breeds we have as all seem to be very suited to small farmstead systems.

Take care everyone and count your blessings... they are all around us.

  1. Turkeys are a hoot! Don't leave your door open into your house or they will be in there to see what's going on!

    We love our turkeys.
