I finally cornered the turkey poults long enough to get a photo. I think they are a pretty unique looking cross. They are getting along with the older chicken chicks just fine. On the other side of the coop, the younger chicks are getting their feathers.
Out in the garden, I have scaled down on what I'm planting this year but things are coming along. This is the first year in a long time that I have not lost any tomato plants to cut worms - I am attributing this to letting the chickens run in the garden in the fall and again in the spring.
Now is the sweet spot of June when the roses are blooming but the rose chafers have not arrived. The blossoms are all very fragrant and it is a treat to spend time out there. Pretty soon those nasties will find them - I have tried various weapons on them but have not had success against them so they just get to munch away while I look the other way - for now though, the roses are such a treat.
