    We had wild turkeys on the farm when I was a kid and I really loved them, but nobody has lived there for about 25 years and poachers have killed all or nearly all of them. I hope to move back there within the next year. I'm going to restock some turkeys and you'd better believe I'll keep the poachers run off!

    keeping up or just catching up with a farm thats been abandoned for a few years is an all consuming job.... trust me on this one.

    It is a lot of work, the one we are doing, both buildings and land had let go for 20 years. It is a long project and one must be patient and realize it takes some time.
    Hard, but enjoyable, work though and the progress really makes one feel good.

    ^^^^ BS you are exactly right.

    ya jump in & go like hell, tearing the bone out of it, giving it all ya got...... but theres just sooooo much to do & after a while (3yrs in the new adventure for me) you realize that its supposed to be healthy & fun... so you slow down, back up, anticipate whats next & then anxiously await good enough weather to make a little progress, hurt yourself again, start the rehab for it, heal, wait for the weather & then lather, rinse, repeat.


    LMAO but it does help keep your work ethic going & give you a sense of accomplishment. & if ya live long enough? you get sections of it done. :-)

    YEP i love it.

    Found my first turkey egg this morning. I was told they would be about the size of a hens egg and that is what it was. Surprised to get it as thought it was a little early
    for them to lay, but weather has turned warmer and we have had some nice sunny days.

    I understand that, but it's a labor of love. I'm retired so I don't need to make any income from the farm; I can do as much or as little as I want.
