Brian, wow, I can't believe what you have done in these past few months. You have truly done a work and a wonder. I would LOVE to see your place, maybe one day, one never knows. It sounds like things are growing fast at your place. That rock diversion will be a wonderful thing that will assist with the waterway, and keeping it low should keep out any environmentalists that would think that you may be wrecking the environment, you and I know better. Fish ladders are good, smiling.
I have a picture of one of my turkey poults that I raised. By the time that he was 7 months old, his beard was clearly becoming, as was his snood. In this picture he had already had the showing of the beard for some time, but he was very interested in breeding with his mother at 7 months, not that Richard would let him, but he surely did want to, as did his brother, oh brother, incest in critters, guess they just don't care, smiling. Glad to hear that so many of your birds you got as babies have grown so nicely. I have mountains of little dudes all over my place that are getting bigger and bigger. I have sold many a bird here in the past month. Have that most wonderful and awesome day, health. Cindi
