WELCOME BACK FRIENDS!!!
This week has been so much fun over at our place.
We caught a small swarm thrown off by our new world carniolan beehive.
We tried free ranging our chickens... so far so good. Minus a few tender raspberry vine leaves and grape leaves. Lol.
We even started incubating some royal palm turkey eggs compliments of a dear friend and fellow blogger Mona, author of the Healthy Homesteading
You can see her FB page HERE
I am having trouble logging on to her blog today. I'll post a link later. Anyway, I wanted to share that Mona was kind enough to give me several of these wonderful heritage breed turkey eggs to hatch. My 70 year old incubator is holding its temp well, so if all goes well we will have baby turkeys in less than a month.
That's all from here. What have YOU been working on this week??? Please share. Thanks!
Do your chickens go to a safe place at night?ReplyDelete
Yes they do. We have an old shed that is pretty tight with a big yard and a smaller run. They even put themselves to bed each evening before dusk. All I have to do is lock them in and make sure the doors are secure.Delete
Oh how exciting to hatch the turklets lol ! Sounds like all is good there glad to hear it ! Have been in a drought for over a month farmers have lost crops it's a shame and we have been trying to keep our gardens watered but good news hopefully we are to be getting a day and a night of rain . I say hopefully cause every time they say rain it seems to go around us ! Have a great day !ReplyDelete
I am so sorry to hear about the drought. I think most of North America is in the same boat right now. Everything in my yard is on a drip except for my hubby's beloved grass patches, and it's been very pricey $$$ keeping it alive so far this summer. He hasn't complained yet, but I have cut back significantly on grass watering. I am praying for rain for all of us. Hang in there Elaine.
I'm looking forward to seeing your little turkey poults! :)ReplyDelete
Me too Candy. Your neighbor's canned carrots look pretty impressive too.Delete
Your homestead is just buzzing... and now baby turkeys' too! Too fun!
