My roos started crowing at 4 am this morning. At 6 am hubby and I went outside. First was a nice walk through the veggie garden. Ugghhh kangaroo rats or prairie dogs are eating my tomato plants. Hope we have fixed the problem. Then we went out to the hens and fed them. They are always so eager to see me in the mornings. Hubby goes in where the turkeys and roos are. Some of the roos are mean. The meanest one found himself swimming in a pot of dumplings last month. The two tom turkeys they love for me to come out to them and beg to be petted. One of them will strut his stuff for me until I pet him. It is adorable to see him blow up and strut 2 feet in front of me. Then I check the breeding pen. We have 3 white hens and the white roo in there and collect their fertile eggs each day. Then I come inside and I turn the eggs in our home made bator. Ahhhhhh such is life. Life is good. 15 hens 8 roos 2 toms 5 dogs 1 cat 10 eggs incubating and soon 2nd bator will be full and ready to hatch out. Yes life is good.
