DS ~ Saved a couple of Hummingbirds~

I opened the garage doors so the lad could get the empty pallets put into the hay shed and two fighting humming birds zipped in.

One ran into a spider web and got stuck, so the Lad climbed all the way up into the rafters... to save it. Pulled all the webs off it before he let it go.
Very tiny male.

The female is still in there, so I went back into the house, after I set a number of bright red things just outside the garage door, hoping to draw her down and out..
DS crawled back into the rafters, and saved the female too.

This garage is very tall... can fit a super sized motor-home in it.

Did take a photo of the female, also covered in thick spider webs.. we cleaned her off before we let her loose.

She was not at all happy. LOL

Turkey Poults ~

Newest additions to the farm.

They hatched at day 25, which is pretty early. Had them under a Speckled Sussex, I feel bad, but I brought them into the house.
Need to raise them with some chicks.
Two are almost dry, the other two are still wet. More photos to come.

4 Turkey poults,  Bernadette/Cpt Morgan.   Who knows what color they will end up being.
