The Poultry.....

The old little camera, used to take really good video shorts... but I think it is wearing out too.
Granted it is a little over 15 years old....

Not the best photo in the world, was really dark out so had to lighten the photo up a lot.
Basically one turkey decided it was going to roost as close to Stjarna's ears as possible.
The last couple of nights, they have been roosting along her back.
Which means I have to wash her fly sheet.
This will be a problem when I put a rain sheet on her. sigh ~~

Not, that Stjarna likes it... but the turkeys sure love her! LOL

 Had to body clip the Icelandic's a few weeks ago, as the weather was still super hot.
Think of wearing a real fur coat, with long johns in 90* weather.....

Then we ended up with rain, since last weds. So I put a rain sheet on Dyfra for the worse of it.
Photo was taken last night, when the rain stopped and the sun came out.

Stjarna, right after being let loose after her body clipping.

Poultry ...

The newest batch of baby chicks, not so small now, were let outside of the Hen House yard yesterday for the first time.
Keeping my fingers crossed they stay in the fence around the house.  They are Buff Orphingtons, Speckled Sussex and Welsummers and the later for their super dark brown eggs.

Mean while... the older Hens are Molting. LOL Poor thing.

And a Couple of the Turkeys.,..
They are a lot of fun to have around.  They think they are people.... LOL
Still not sure if I have all hens or not? They are about 5 months old and still haven't heard a Gobble out of any of them.

Sunrise, the Moon and French Flowers....

Not sure I told you, but last month I ran across some Rose bushes that were only $6.00. I bought two of them.
One was a French variety of very hard Tea Rose.  Plant is doing very well and the Roses are beautiful.
Nice to have Roses in the house again.

Not sure how I did it, but I managed to get my not so good camera, to take this photo of a very, very large moon., one night. 
Even caught a star just above the upper right side, though I am not sure you can see it, sized down as the photo is.

A Sunrise, early one morning in Oct.....
