Turkey Update Fall & Winter 2016-2017

After the Lord granted a Black Turkey heritage breed female to just show up on our homestead one day, and granting we be able to find her a mate, and then granting some turkey chicks to hatch (I called them "turklets"), by His graces they have continued to grow, and are making their presence known around the homestead. At times, they act like they own the place! :)

With Hank, which is brown and name starts with the letter "H", we decided to name the brown male Lil Hank and the brown female Haddie; and with Trina, which is black and name starts with the letter "T", we decided to name the black female Tasha.

Here is a video update of them over the last several months, from when we let them out of their cage area in the summer kitchen for their first day of free ranging around the homestead to just this past Lord's day. It's a little long, but they're also fun and fascinating to watch, especially when they fly up on our house porch roof and look in the upper windows! :) The high jinks really start about half way through, although we cover time before that, as letting them out was a big deal for us since we didn't really know what was going to happen once they got free, but the Lord has been gracious in their health and safety and granting they stick around! :)




We are thankful to God for granting the continued health and safety of these unexpected gifts, and we ask for guidance with our turkey raising!
