Goat house, turkeys, and 111 pictures!!

Yes, that is right! 111 pictures! I am so far behind on blogging it is ridiculous! So I have attempted to upload some of my pictures from the last month or so. I still have nearly a thousand pictures on my camera that did not get uploaded from over the last 7 months! So scroll down all the posts and back a couple of pages to check them all out! Hopefully now that I have updated some pictures I can keep it updated!
I hatched 4 turkeys myself this year from Bourbon Red Tom and my two hen turkeys. Two turkeys have this beautiful red color and two of them look like the hens.
11 yo and I made this crate so we could move them around on fresh grass daily instead of just leaving them in the rabbit hutch with no access to grass. They are still to small to just put them in the coop with the other birds.
It is kind of hard to see but the new electric fence is in the background. The goats have about a 1/2 an acre to run on.

8 and 13 yo up on the roof of the new goat house.

14 yo DS has been helping the neighbor build a goat house for me. It is 8'x12'. 14 yo helped the neighbor take the trees from out of the woods, cut them on the sawmill, and then turn the boards into this awesome goat house! I have enough room in it for a whole herd of goats!
The roof over hangs in the front so I can put the milking stand under it and not get wet while I am milking. DH is going to hang a light on it for me because I have done several night time milkings! I try to stay consistent with the time but some days it is really hard.
The door is split in half so we can lock them in and still have the top open for fresh air.

Your turkeys are cool. The kids were just asking me a few days ago if we could get some turkeys
