New Roosts for the Chickens and New Turkeys at the Farm

As you know from reading this blog, there are many, many trees that fell at my farm in Bedford when a twister came through and the cleanup has been extensive.  Alfredo, one of the workers at the farm, designed some really great roosts for the chicken coop last year from another fallen tree.  We thought it would be a good idea to replace those roosts with new ones.  Also, to add to my poultry population, there was a recent delivery of new turkeys.  These are beautiful heritage breeds, including Bourbon Red, Royal Palm, and Black Spanish.  They were hatched at Murray McMurray Hatchery and spent the first part of their lives at my friend and neighbor, Michael Steinhardt’s, estate.  I’ll keep you posted on how they adjust and grow.
