Feisty..."Fishy" seems appropriate with the weather your having! Glad your birds got out. Big Bird looks good soaking up some rays!

I was late for Turkey Tuck In....found them perched on the back porch rail waiting for me. The chickens put themselves to bed, but the turkeys will try to roost on my porch. I could get them down & march them off to the coop...however, I pick each one off the rail & carry their fat butts to their coop & install them on their roost. They are tired, its almost dark & I get in a few good hugs on the way. I'm pathetic!

I KNEW IT! I could just imagine you rolling your eyes at me tucking in my turks! BUT they are half asleep and cuddly! Its hard for me to resist a cuddly turkey hen. The other thing that's cool is early in the morning. I start running the dogs around 4:30. Its still dark & as I pass their coop I always say "morning girls"....and from the depths of their darkened coop they quietly trill back to me. Nothing better than that quiet & sleepy morning trill.

I also pop them into a carton and don't touch them again until I want an omelet. Sorry, couldn't help myself!

I have a broody! On the window sill of my bathroom! It's a robin! Was getting ready for work yesterday morning & movement at the window caught my attention. Saw these skinny little bird legs! Got home last night & she had the nest almost done. No eggs, but she was flying to and fro last night.
