A couple of weeks ago, I arrived home to hear a familiar and favorite sound. It was the melodic sound of turkeys chirping next door.
Oh, how I’ve missed that sound. So has Mister Turkey:
Our new turkey girl neighbors are incredibly friendly. Most evenings when we call to them, they come running over to say hello:
Many of you know of my overwhelming need to name everything. I’m very thankful to our wonderful neighbor for allowing me the privilege of naming his new girls.
And welcome, Babette:
Remember the part where I mentioned how friendly they are? When I sit on the fence, they fly up and join me most evenings for a chat. They’re not shy:
And we really do chat:
It’s a blessing to have such nice neighbors, don’t you think?
Babette is a bit smaller than Gabby and has a beautiful line of black feathers going down the center of her back:
And a lighter colored face and wattle:
Gabby is extremely outgoing and very outspoken:
And has taken to roosting each night on the gate between the goat and sheep runs here at Morning Bray Farm:
Welcome to the neighborhood, ladies. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for lots of turkey babies this spring. ♥
