Pretty nice here today also, partly sunny and around 50 degrees. My wife and I worked outside some of the day.Oh what a blessed day! We've had some spring like weather this last week. Up above freezing during the day. I've been able to get out into the yard, pull some leaves out of the trailer to enrich the bedding in the chicken coop and run. Walked in the garden (even if it was covered with snow and ice! And even went out for a walk. Balm to my weary soul.
Since it looks like the turkey hens are going to go into lay soon. We booted our layers and roos out to free range now. That way the turkeys can have some privacy. We also hay'ed in the coop and put a little brooding house in coop for the turkeys to lay their clutches in. 5 turkeys in a 12'x20' should be sufficient enough space, don't you think?
