Surprise poultry came today very pleased
« on: May 16, 2012, 01:32:35 PM »
Got my surprise box of poultry this morning 42 total, out of those 2 are ducks, 2 are turkerys, and 2 are still a mystery might be quail of some sort. The rest are mix of different type/breed chickens. I am excited about the turkeys they appear to be black spanish turkeys which won't be for eating :) they are considered a rare breed turkey. Its bugging me that I can't figure out what the 2 mystery ones are

where do you get a surprise box of birds?   :-D
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Congrats on your new little ones.  They sound happy.

Looked up your exotic two.  Sounds like the boys identify themselves early.
