    The only chickens she has now are Basque and Blue Bresse. She has some waterfowl and Sweetgrass turkeys too. She has a lot more but her barns burned down a couple of years ago and she lost several breeds including Buckeyes, Coronation Sussex, Delawares, and several others.

    WATCH OUT!! The shy is falling,, the sky is falling!


    I got a diamond encrusted egg today, the first in months!


    It has thrown my off center a tad more than normal. I forgot how pretty they are!

    Sprout. Is the fleet farm brand. I want to say it's bagged and distributed from Wisconsin.

    Ralphie for some reason I want to say MNHomestead BYCer may have Sussex. I think she had SFHs and I don't know for sure what else. She is in Milaca Cambridge area. Might be worth a PM.

    The people on the turkey site have come up with a rating system for turkeys "tameness".

    I think it is worth mentioning here for use describing chickens and other fowl.


    I think it is genius.


    Lappers ----- Likes to be held and petted
    Tolorants----- Will tolerate being held and petted but obviously does not eat it up like a lapper does.
    Lurkys----- Hang around you, follow you, but will not allow themselves to be held.
    Belly Buttons---- Kind of self explanatory. I use the same term there as here to sneak by the censor..





    And in other good news. I have a picture of one of my turkeys on Porters turkey site now! He is a famous turkey! They asked if they could use my picture as they did not have one, He even credited the picture to me!
