Mature Turkeys

The tom turkeys must be mature. I never thought that we would have this issue, but it seems that we do– the toms (we have three of them) are fighting… a lot! So Myles segregated them yesterday; one will stay with the hens in the pasture, and the other two are individually penned in the barn for the moment. The two that are penned have an entire winter-goat-pen to themelves (each) and will be living for about one more month before Thanksgiving.

Halloween is Coming
The broilers/roaster chicks that came in a week ago are fabulously healthy and growing like weeds.

It is raining here. The chickens are undeterred and still in the pasture foraging and scratching.
