These two fellows joined our flock about 2 weeks ago. One is a turken - he has a "naked neck" as no feathers grow there. They free-range the yard eating my tics, so the first useful act accomplished by our birds! They do not play well with our growing chicks (the whole pecking order is very clear) so they will become dinner soon - that is, after they fatten up on all the bugs!
Jubilee has make friends with Chip - our milk-chocolate-brown hen. She waits for Jubi and will just sit so quietly in her arms. This is very amazing for us to see as the others want nothing to do with any of us.
