Talking Turkey

Okay, even in summer there are days where we just take the time to enjoy the animals.  The turkeys are growing so fast.  We have two toms and 3 hens. I think we will keep all of them this year.  Hopefully next spring we will be able to put a few turkey eggs into the incubator to hatch or under the hen.  I just love turkeys. I know that some people think that they are dumb. There are old wives tales about turkeys not having the sense to come in out of the rain and drown themselves.  Sorry, but that just isn't true.  I think turkeys are loving, will follow you around, and are great conversationalist.  See for yourself.


Well, maybe we are a bit strange. It makes for great entertainment down on the farm.  We are in a kind of calm time here.  First cut hay is in the barn, just finished de worming the animals.  Now that I think of it, we need to get started on cutting wood again. Darn. I thought we were all caught up. Well, back to work.
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.

Be careful Ted....Bending over while talking turkey is very dangerous. My wife was doing that with our young ones and one jumped up and tore a chunk out of her lip.

Ted needs to work on his whistle, but I really don't think they notice. I just love turkeys. They have such personalities.

Ted is having more fun than the law ought to allow - impressive conversation - and previous post about guineas is great - yes they are noisy and not at all smart (turkey are much smarter than guineas) they are the world's best at controlling fleas, ticks and grasshoppers!

This is my 3rd year raising turkeys and I would totally agree about them being personable and lots of fun. I have 4 this year and hope to winter over a pair and let them produce poults next spring. We'll see.
