Spring things!

We have had a week or so of totally gorgeous weather. Everything on the farm (including me) is really happy about it!

Strawberries are coming!

We had two hens go broody this year so we have two batches of little peepers running around being raised by mamas, with no work required on our parts. Hooray for mama hens.

Last week we scored some free baby turkeys on Craigslist. Several were ill and a few had died, and their owner was sad and stressed about it, and just wanted to hand them off to someone else to take care of them. Two of ‘em didn’t make it after we brought them home, but the other nine have recovered and seem healthy. We moved them out to the coop this week.

And here is a video so you can enjoy their sweet little turkey sounds.

    Everything looks all sprung, and the turkeys look happy :)
