Today we did the first of the turkey's,
its being collected tomorrow
It was a very quick dispatch no fuss no noise
It was fairly easy to pluck
This one weighed in at just under 14lb
Next week end we do the rest of them all ready to grace Christmas tables.
They are all single breasted heritage breeds.
The other day when I was cleaning out the poultry houses
the turkeys started scrapping,
I managed to get a short video of them
They often have a little scrap.
The chickens were being difficult as well
refusing to wait until I had finished
they started piling in and scratching about while I was still putting bedding in.
Of course a lot of it ended up outside the hen house.
A couple of weeks they move into bigger accommodation.
That's it from me today.
