Next, the shed for the guineas and pheasants gets checked. They have been pretty self sufficient and I haven't needed to top up their food and water bins. Lastly, it's time to talk turkey.
I was a little apprehensive the first time I had to go into the turkey pen. They are large birds. Large. There is one male, and 3 females. They stayed away from me on the first visit (which suited me fine) but now they are happy to see me and come right up to me when I'm filling their water container. (and I'm not frightened of them anymore...I actually think they are cool dudes and really like the sounds they make)
Those guys drink a lot! I guess if I was a turkey and it was 3 days away from Canadian Thanksgiving, I'd be drinking a lot too. I'm not sure if there are plans for turkey dinner at our neighbour's place, but I'll be thinking of my new turkey pals on Thanksgiving Day.
