Turkeys...




Why do I always forget the joy of turkeys?We built them a beautiful shed, with laying boxes, and big perches.... And the goofballs take to the pergola. Partly because Larry was doing some carpentry stuff, and left the saw horses on the back porch. they made a mess of the deck that way!  I am not sure if it was intentional to try to hit Moose with some droppings, since he has harassed his fair share of young turkeys.

I guess it's a good sign that the birds are growing up, but the ones that misbehave are first on the chopping block for Thanksgiving. Did you hear that birdies? If you sleep in the shed we built for you, you may be spared!!

(Oh, and BTW, Larry has a book on building animal housing, that we use as a resource when building things. This book states that Turkeys don't need perches. What do you think???
