Winter wanes on...

A lone turkey wanders about the grounds...the chickens are all laying again...from 2 eggs per day to 14 eggs per day overnight! They wait impatiently at the laying box, squawking loudly to demand their turn...a small nest is discovered in one of the fields which appears to contain a hibernating animal...the pond is windswept and frozen again after the recent thaw. Crow comes for a much needed retreat from the city...Vanessa starts work on the lambing pen...20 lambs are due starting in March!

Resident Turkeys

A huge flock of turkeys makes it's home up here on the mountain. The other day, they hunched in the trees over the sheep's paddock. This day they came onto the driveway to investigate the road salts, I suspect.
