This is just a rant...I have had these turkey poults in my house for a little over 6 weeks!! I realize a lot of people probably think we are nuts to keep them in the house,but here were my reasons...I wanted to be able to watch them super close so they would stay healthy,and they have.I got 19 and still have 19 6 weeks later.I wanted them people oriented and knew if we put them in the garage,they would not get as much attention.I know we should have built the turkey coop first but,we've foolishly,impulsively bought all our birds first! You would think we would have learned by now,but....we haven't.We get starry-eyed over a new bird and that's it! It's over!They would be outside now but my job got in a pinch, and I've been working OT...*sigh*...and to top that off....2 of our cars broke down in the last week...so DH has been busy working on cars after work! I Love my turkeys BUT I AM READY FOR THEM TO BE OUTSIDE! We have a daytime area for them but not one for night time that's safe. Darn those pesky predators!! So we have brought this on ourselves,and truth be told...they don't bother ME as much as it bothers me when I have COMPANY...most people DO NOT get it!! Ok...I am grateful we have jobs....I am grateful we have turkeys now...I am grateful we are able to work at all.... Maybe if I pound it in enough, I'll feel like that! Ok,I feel better now!
