Oh Happy Day!!
The turkeys were finally able to be released from the tractor today and they were most happy. Jumping and flapping their wings they now have the freedom to roam the front pasture that is almost 7 acres. I have Blue Slates, Narragansetts and a couple of broad breasted bronze. The bronze are slated for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. The others I hope will raise babies in the spring. At some point I will have to separate them and figure out a system that will allow them to range yet not cross breed but for now they are happy birds. And I am a happy girl- no more dragging the tractor around daily.
