|This is our tom turkey.
A tom turkey is a boy turkey.
I love his feathers!
Did you see the rooster walk through the video? We have one rooster and one tom turkey. We have two turkey hens. You saw those in another post.
If you want to read more about turkeys that aren’t smart, you can read this post.
I really hope that you are smart enough to follow what your mom and teachers tell you to do! They are trying to keep you safe and healthy!
|I’m not sure what you mean by ‘colder’
We live about 30 minutes away from your school.
It’s usually close to the same temperature here as it is at your school.
|The weather doesn’t bother the animals.
The sheep have warm, wool ‘coats’ on in the winter.
They are very warm even though they have snow on their backs!
All of our farm animals have shelter. Some have stalls in the barn, some have sheds to get into out of the rain and snow, some have small shelters to snuggle inside when it’s cold.
|No, we don’t have any pigs.
The city we live in doesn’t let us have pigs.
Sad! We would love to try to raise a pig or two!
We’ve never done that before!
|We have 2 cows, 1 milk goat, and 3 sheep.
We have 3 turkeys, 6 ducks, and about 20 chickens.
|We get 4-5 dozen eggs a week right now.
We’ll get more as the weather warms up, and the sun is out longer.
Did you know that chickens need about 14 hours of daylight each day to lay eggs?
If you have dogs or cats, you might be noticing that they are beginning to shed their winter coats. You might have a lot of fluff and hair around your house. That’s because the days are getting longer, and the dogs’ bodies know that more daylight means that it’s getting warmer.
