No phloods here, unless lots o' rain counts.

 

Baby turks have made it through week one and are still going strong. They're starting to realize that getting picked up frequently leads to scrambled egg treats.  Mom, of course, already has that figured out.

My, it has been quiet here of late. Even the tumbleweeds have not visited.

Not much to say here. Some family news that has me down, but that I am not yet ready to share here.

If you have been here long enough, you will know about my brother, Rob. His latest novel, his 22nd, is making bestseller lists. Visit http://sfwriter.com

Hope all is okay, POeter......

 

Rob was here in Ottawa on Monday night reading from Red Planet Blues at the Clocktower Pub. Jack was very disappointed that he could not go as he had an important vocal lesson. Jack visits Rob's website regularly, and has chatted with him on fb......a real fan....!

Hey Peter
Sending good thoughts.

Wow, Rob is prolific! I haven't read any sf for a few years, but they look very good. Right up Mr Mindwarp's street too :)

Not much news here, but very chilly. We saw some sun this morning and made it to the park. We are pretty hardy folk (I seem to sometimes be the only parent who thinks it is outside weather...)but our hands were blue by the time we left.

Whatever happened to Tarm?

Hello dearest psillies,

 

I hope this finds you all doing well (or headed in that direction). Some of you received this from me via email. It's is a link to an interesting article.

 

Love & healing (((hugs))),

Loey

 

It isn't practical for most of us but worth reading nonetheless:

It was a tough week for turks here and we were down to one (now named Gloria, because she will survive).  The pirate suggested we get a couple more so we went to the store and discovered they had three left from the same batch.  Since they were expecting a new batch of chicks the next day and needed the room we got a good deal on them and brought all three home.

 

These poor things have spent their whole lives in a cage.  We put them in the brooder and they just kind of stood there all hunched up and occasionally pecking at each other.  I made a little pen outside and put them in the grass with a light for a little bit of warmth.  It was way too cold for them since the store hadn't been adjusting their heat lamp.  While the pirate headed off to get a heat lamp, I sat on the ground with turkeys tucked into my jacket.  I'd let them get warm for a few minutes then set them in the pen where they'd gobble down some food, then stand around looking cold and miserable until I'd put back in my jacket.

 

The pirate got back and set up a warm brooder with the light on top and a little door for the turks.  I made sure they figured out the door and then just watched them.

 

Happy happy little turkeys chowing down on scrambled egg and chick food while constantly running back into the brooder to get warm. I put Gloria in the pen with them and realized how small and skinny these guys actually are.

 

When it started to rain I put Gloria back in the chicken pen with her mom and brought the turkey brooder inside.  I built a tiny little pen for them to have some space and put the food and water in it. 

 

All I hear are happy little chatty poults with the occasional yummy! chirp when one comes out to eat, which is almost constantly.

 

Poor little things have broken toes from getting caught in the cage floor, damaged feathers from picking each other, weak, wobbly legs from never really moving, and no resistance to cold.

 

I turned the heat lamp off last night for bed and they were terrified - probably never been in the dark.  I put a lamp outsided and hung a tiny LED nightlight in through the top. 

 

I woke them up this morning after what was probably the best sleep of their lives.  They're eating constantly and hopefully adapting to the cold. This room is chilly and they come out to eat and hold up one foot.

 

I went to turn the heater in the bathroom on to warm it up for my showere and heard peep peep peep PEEP, which I believe translates to "Mom!! Where did you go MOM?"

 

Butch thinks 'turkey tv' is the best thing EVER, but after being yelled at a few times for sticking his paw through the wire he's sitting farther away.
