Turkeys

We have 25 poults (out of  28 eggs set!). The yellow poults are pied turkeys, the stripey ones are bronze, and the pink ones are Bourbon Reds. Possibly some of these are going to be for sale when they are a bit bigger as we probably have more than we are going to need for breeding/eating.





Meanwhile, the geese are doing well (we have 4 geese and 7 ganders of the West of Englands -- I would have liked more geese, but it's enough to start up two unrelated trios) and some chicken eggs have gone in the incubator. The one Bourbon Red hen who survived the winter has been relocated to a more appropriate pen and been joined by a pied hen and a Cornish Palm stag.
