Today we became turkey farmers. After the grand kiddos were out of school, we went to the local farm store to buy four turkeys. There were five in the tub and we couldn't leave just one there so he came home with us too. It was so fun to look at all the baby chicks, geese, ducks and turkeys. I say these are the only birds we are getting this year. Time will tell. This reminds my of my friend last year with her chicks.
We don't know if they are girls or boys, we'll find out soon enough. It doesn't really matter. These are being raised for meat. I'm glad I don't have to explain to the kiddos about this. I think it's best to dump that chore on to the parents. They are so darn cute!
