We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

So Bummed, Today

Roux and Bercer's mom has rejected them.  This morning we found both bucklings weak and just laying about.  So the boys and I brought them inside.  Roux the smaller of the two is only taking small sips from a eye dropper.  Bercer is hanging tough and has almost gotten the hang of taking a bottle.

Just say a little prayer for the bucklings will ya?  I hate to see such small creatures suffering in any way. 

On another note:  we are now the proud owners of six (2 day old) bourban red turkeys.  Who knew how noisey six smallish birds could be so dang noisey. I mean they are LOUD.

Also welcome new follower, Max. Nice to meet ya!

I hope they will be OK, just keep at it. I have had bottle kids take up to a couple days to really start to get the hang of taking a bottle.
