The first turkey poult hatched at Ann's house yesterday! Isn't it a cutie? We are a little concerned because it doesn't want to eat. We hope it figures it out soon!
Praise the Lord, from whom all blessings flow. They certainly have flowed on our farm. We have received over 3 inches of soaking rain. And the temperatures are pleasant low 70s. Very unusual for the middle of July in the middle of Texas!
Bob finished the guinea coop in time for them to spend the night in it. Seems like it will work out well.The guinea keets won't need it long. Soon they will be roosting in the trees by the barn like their parents.
We bought a pair of Seramas from Jacob Astleford of San Marcos, California and he brought them to us at the Springtown Serama Show.
Jacob breeds fantastic birds and always does well at the shows. We are pleased to finally get a pair from his breeding.
Coming up with names is always fun for me. In honor of his breeder, I'm calling the boy "Jake" as in Jake from Allstate... so the little girl is "Khaki" as in "What are you wearing, Jake from Allstate?"
