supporting the upcoming show.

At the meeting,
we delivered 3 of our sold does
to a SC family.
Gabbi, Peach, and Pansy
have moved to a warmer climate.
Hopefully, we will see them
again in the shows.
Today, we were working in the
old equipment shed,
setting up two pens.
SweetPea being nosy.

SweetPea acts like a dog,
staying nearby when we are outside.

SweetPea is my best friend. 

We told Jack that he has to guard
5 of the turkeys in a new spot.

Forcing the turkey girls
to lay and go broody in this pen.
Our poultry nestboxes are
not large enough for 'em.
Our turkeys are used to
free ranging so they aren't
gonna like being penned.

I want some turkey babies this year,
