After doing some thinking we decided our turkey poults would be better off being raised by their mama. So now they’re all back together once again.
Dylan got the go kart finished so we test it out. Also, a turkey update…. did the egg hatch?
The garden has become a weedy disaster so now it’s time to change up my plan.
We checked on our turkey hen and her poults and we found a surprise!
Our turkeys are finally here and now we have more turkeys than we know what to do with.
Turkey hen has shifted and is sitting differently on her nest… maybe her eggs are hatching!
Our turkey hen is diligently setting on her nest. Are there any signs they’ll be hatching soon?
There has been a couple of things that I’ve been wanting to get done for a while… so today is the day to get them done!
We’re moving our buck to a bigger pasture. He needed a shelter so we made an easy, cheap temporary shelter for him… nothing too fancy.
We had a busy day with lots of places to go. One of the things we did was go to the Sunflower Hot Air festival in Anthony, Ks in hopes of watching them fly hot air balloons.
Just getting some planting done and trying to plant according to what grows best together.
So much to do, so little time… then it rains.
We’ve been having bad luck trying to hatch out turkeys this year. Well, that luck just got even worse because one of our turkey hens died. We’re not sure if our eggs will hatch but we’re not giving up yet. On a brighter note, we picked mulberries and strawberries and decided to make a pie. Didn’t have enough of one kind of berry so we made a little bit of this and a little bit of that berry pie!
We decided to try camping out again… only this time we decided to add a few things to make it a little more comfortable. The weather was perfect and it was a calm, relaxing evening… well, at least until the bugs came out.
We decided to have a little fun and pitch a tent and rough it for a night. Wind, possibility of storms, hard ground, coldness…. I wonder if we will tough it out or go to the house?
The turkeys got up from there nest and I couldn’t decide if I should take the eggs and put them in the incubator or leave them. I hope I didn’t make the wrong decision!
We’ve always dealt with cedar apple rust but this year it will be worse than usual because of the wet weather we’ve been having. I find it annoying, but at the same time, it’s very interesting. I did a little research on it and show you what it looks like. I also give an update on the injured bunny and show you how our alfalfa patch is doing.
We’re just not having good luck with the bunnies, it’s just one thing after another! On a positive note, we finally found time to get more work done in the garden.
Well, the turkey eggs didn’t hatch, but I plan to do research and try again. We put our calf in the pen outside and he was a little spooked by the change of routine so Brooke took him for a walk to get him used to being outside.
It was a rainy dreary weekend but that didn’t stop it from being beautiful, fun and exciting!
Our bunnies sure are growing! It’s a beautiful day and would be a perfect day to get a lot done outside but we have to go out of town for an appointment. Oh well, it was still a great day!
I’m discussing the different ways that we will try to hatch the turkeys. After doing some research it seems like it may be more difficult than I was thinking…
A Closer look at the bunnies and an update on our seedlings….
The bunnies have finally arrived and they’re so cute! We’ve finally collected enough turkey eggs to put in the incubator… hopefully we’ll have some turkey poults soon!
There was a little living stone plant at Brooke’s work. It got knocked over and over looked so she felt sorry for it and brought it home. She re-potted it, did some research and shares some interesting facts about it.
We got a new pen built for the turkeys… got them moved out there… and they are settling in quite nicely. Should have done this a long time ago!
