Not Just Cats Anymore

Yes, I have been away for a few months. Five to be exact.
During that busy time I have embarked on another venture, this one sort of involving cats. That of hatching eggs, raising my own chicks, building turkey hutches and insulated chicken coups. Yet another venture of purchasing day old meat chicks. Quite an experience that has been so far.
So I figure I have all but lost my readers as a consequence. Well, maybe they will find their way back and/or I will be lucky enough to attract new readers.
Over the next few days I will be writing some blogs recounting my experiences so far in this new venture. In the meantime, here are some appetizers. These were all taken in April of this year.

Turkey, Tukey Chick
Amber, turkey chick

Amber and Rue, my turkey chicks from New Brunswick. Rue, the little brown one, has since died. I have no idea why she started to sicken or what make her ill but I lost her and that was a small tragedy for us. She was the cuddler and loved nothing more than cuddling under your chin.

The chicks I hatched from eggs I got from a nearby farm who had Roos running with the Hens.

Close up of Amber, she may be a he, don't know yet... Rue is sleeping beside her.

My cats, at least one of them. A cats on every available chair and surface around here.


  1. Welcome Back! Nice Pics of all the babies! Sorry to hear about Rue. I best be updating my blog too. Took a bunch of pics today so maybe in the next few days.

  2. Thanks Betty. I've just been so very busy with other stuff... Its nice to be back though. I'll check out your blog as well.

  3. Our cat trees allow your cat to go on those adventures the outside has to offer without ever actually leaving the indoors of a safe zone. Make sure your cat is in shape and having fun climbing a cat tower that provides a challenge and experience he/she has never seen before.
