Poor Zach, the turkeys kept wriggling and he tried so hard to keep them still!!! Thanksgiving and Christmas have now moved from small bin to a larger cage in our garage,and soon they will be out in the turkey pen in our backyard. It has been a couple of years since we had a turkey,so the old pen will need some sprucing up. I must admit,once you have had fresh turkey,the frozen store bought ones pale by comparison.
We wanted the bronze turkeys,and we did have them at first,but out of the four we had,two died (which is normal),and the others didn't make it because the heat lamp got disconnected. We got four more,but those where regular white turkeys. Again, we lost two,and so far so good with the remaining two. We feed them medicated mash and green leafy foods.
I didn't realize that it has been almost a week since I blogged! Things have been quite busy around here lately!
