say cheese!

animals around the farm pose for pictures!the turkeys peek in through the goat door at me.

this is our lone surviving weasel massacre chicken from last fall. she spent most of the winter inside with us (at night). then, after i put her in the big coop in a cage to protect her from the big chickens, i let her out to roam when i let the rest out and she wandered into the pasture where the great pyrs got her and played football with her. you can still see the bit of wound still healing up. as greg says, she should have died twice but is still alive and kicking. she has abandoned the big coop, hiding out in the shed and roosting in there at night. when she gets a bit bigger, i'll start putting her in the coop for the night.

moon dog, laughing at the silliness of it all.

My Grandparents had a couple of turkeys like that on their farm , that pic takes me back to my childhood. What breed are the turkeys?

joyceann - they are bronze turkeys.

karl - he was supposed to be our solstice dinner until the stomach virus took over the household. he was granted a reprieve.

catherder - they are rather large...and heavy! when we butcher, we're going to have to roast them on a spit outdoors i think.
