Turkeys and Ducks

Now that we have some grass the turkeys are free ranging far and wide. They go all over our big front paddock. So far they are coming home to roost before it gets dark. The last lot of turkey chicks did not grow very quickly as it was so dry and feed so scarce but this lot are almost indistinguishable from the older ones.

As we have finally concluded that our ducks are all ducks! We have borrowed a drake from a guy at Peter's work. Now that we have a drake we can see that drakes are obviously larger than the ducks and have more red on their beak. So far the ducks are still not laying but hopefully they will soon and then we can set them.
The Drake is the handsome one nearest the corrugated iron wall.
