The weather as I type this is far too lovely for me to be squandering time in front of the computer, so this will be brief. But since I am still sitting here with a child on my lap, I might as well show you the turkeys. They have been here for two weeks already - my how time flies!
That's what a turkey looks like when it's one day old. Ben is raising them for one of his 4-H projects this year, just like he did last year. He does a very good job of taking care of them; I only have to look in the brooder once a day to see that he is keeping them in food and water. In a couple of weeks, they'll be ready to move out of the brooder and onto pasture. Then, when they're ready for market, they will be almost as big as Ben.
Here he is in the show ring with the turkey he selected to take to the county fair for judging. He won the trophy for Novice Showmanship. I'm very proud of him!
