Spring has Sprung...

Well the Osprey are back and nesting on the bridge, the Turkeys are out in full feathered beauty. And our Japanese Bantams have just hatched 2 of nine eggs last night. I went out to lock up the chickens and take a head count and pick up the last of the day's laying. I have to check under the 3 Bantams as the big hens will push them off the nest to lay their eggs, (rolling eyes) I reached under and to my surprise I got peeps calling out from under them. Here is the first picture.
 This morning when I went to let them out and check the 3 hens they were content (see below)
 Then when I went to check to see if any more had hatched I got this response... Look at those tail feathers all spread out. They were not happy with me at all. I just felt under and there were still 6 eggs so I left them alone. Will check them later.
 Now I had to run into Junction City, with mom and when I cam home I had to stop on the bridge as it looks like someone might have hit it again. (road workers fixing it) I took the opportunity to take pictures of the wild turkey's. I never have my camera ready when they are out. But this time as I had to wait for traffic, I got 2 pictures. I find them both ugly and beautiful. LOL

Look at those tail feathers... I find them so amazing. Well off to see the Chiropractor real soon. Hope my back is out and not something else going on. Have a good week everyone!!
