Journal entry November 19, 2004
Next week is Thanksgiving and so we shall have a turkey massacre on Monday. Sometimes I wish I had never ordered these birds! They are all locked up, because I don’t have a real fence around the house and they make sh*t paintings all over my sidewalks and decks. Isn’t it funny how problem #1 leads to problem #2?
Since they are all locked up together, the turkeys (we believe) are eating the chicken eggs. We know that they ate five (at least) today. I am thinking about some serious thinning of the flock. I was going to keep a breeding pair of the turkeys, but now I am thinking they all belong in the freezer.
Life goes on as usual at Hartwick farm . . . at least until Monday.
