My Greeters

I'll get around to posting part 2 of the Weekend Project soon....like as soon as I get around to finishing it! I'm happy to say we've been delayed by rain both Monday and Tuesday evenings!


I wanted to show you I am greeted with in the mornings when I go out to feed the animals.



The turkeys have figured out I come out of the side door, and now they come up onto the deck in the mornings so they can wait for me and be sure I don't forget to feed them.


And they've found my potted herbs...


"Hmm, let's have a look at this. Is there enough perlite in this potting soil?"


And more exciting turkey news....

I was on the phone with my mom the other day and I happened to look out the kitchen window into the back yard. I saw a turkey near the hedgerow, and thought that it looked awfully big. Then I realized it was a wild turkey!! I kept watching and soon about 3 or 4 adult turkeys and several poults filed out of the hedgerow and into the yard! They were interested in my turkeys, who are on the right side of the picture below. If you click on it, you'll probably be able to see the wild ones on the left. How cool!! I've never seen wild turkeys on our property before.

I love it when the wild turkeys visit. I can't tell you how many times I have had to stop and let turkeys cross. I love your poults. We still have Tom Tom after a year. He escaped the butcher last year. Now he is the pet. Good luck with the birds. They are beautiful.

Cute Greeters :) We have wild turkeys all over, but I've never seen on in our yard either.

They are so funny. Turkeys have such great personalities.... too bad for them that they're so tasty. LOL
That's neat that the wild turkeys came for a visit.

It's neat seeing wild turkeys but you realize that they don't have the meat on their bones that hybrids have. How neat that they came to check out your flock! As long as they don't lure them away with horror stories of what will happen next. Turkeys can be so gossipy! Love, Momma
