Well I went to buy some Turkeys.........(Pics added)
« on: August 28, 2010, 17:23 »
Off I toddled with daughters in tow to buy a couple of Christmas Turkeys.  Ive always wanted to grow my own crimbo birds and was lucky enough to find a chap locally who had a few left...superb!!

Well we got there and he showed us his lovely batch of Jubilee Orpington chicks that are a week old today.  Fantastic little bundles of fluff that will turn into real beuties when fully grown.  Of course I had the kids in tow and not enough in my wallet to buy two different lots of birds and I am mean enough most of the time to say no to the girls if I have to but the look on my youngest daughters face this time was just too much!

I am now the proud owner of 6 chicks so a shop bought Turkey for the table again this year!

pretty bird the jubilee orp is, just make sure your house and run are like colditz after your last problem. As for the turkey I know a good turkey breeder if you want a really tasty home grown bird for that special holiday dinner  :)

Did they look at you with their pleading beady eyes Minn  ::) :lol:

Is the breeder looking after them untill they are off heat or are you all geared up for that ?
