Monday 27/1

I'm through with trying to think up titles for blog posts so at the moment I'm just sticking with the date. One less thing to think about. Today it's almost all about turkeys. These guys have hatched out just in time to have some handling from Grace and Hope before school goes back tomorrow (such lucky turkey chicks). Perhaps that's one of the reason the girls aren't overly fond of turkey meat, they spend too much time loving them when they are chicks. For the same reason they don't eat lamb either.

Me on the other hand will only touch them if it's a matter of life and death. I do not like picking up birds. I like watching them and looking after them just please don't ask me to pick one up.

They do make cute chicks though. With turkeys the cute stage is very short lived so you have to make the most of it while it lasts.

I'm glad there is a little green grass around for them to forage and to get lost hide in.

Dinner tonight is that spaghetti squash with an eggplant, tomato and basil sauce. I will be making a small batch of proper pasta just in case. I'm a fan of squash so I'm looking forward to the spaghetti squash even though I've heard mixed reviews about it. My guess will be that the adults will eat it and enjoy it, Grace will eat it just this once and Hope will be wanting 2 minute noodles (sorry we don't have any).

Such cute little turkey chicks. Though I can just picture them as they start to grow looking rather scruffy and not nearly as cute.

A couple of years ago we tried spaghetti squash and liked it; but last year after having it once, for some reason we weren't in a hurry to have it again.

Make the most of those chicks while they are cute. So, how was the spaghetti squash?

I must try spaghetti squash, I am sure the kids would love it.
Your turkey chicks look so cute.
I am just starting out with some meat chickens - do you have the courage to do the turkeys yourself or do you have someone else do it ?
