  1. I think we considered having turkeys at one point, but decided not to. Our neighbours a half mile down the hill have a half dozen free-range wandering around the garden, which can be a bit startling.

    I liked the bit of video in the shed with the chicks heading to the camera. We have a handful of hens and I ended up blogging about the “green welly effect” – once chicks are mobile they quickly learn that the thing wearing the green boots brings food and rush over.

  2. Proof what a small world it is when you got me started in the BB community, and now I also consider Gary one of my blogging buddies. 🙂 About the writing you plan for the future, do you imagine yourself always sharing how to see the positive, or does that outlook also provide roots you might work into a fictional story?
