Turkeys and Chickens

Chickens and turkeys from our trip to the Lyndon B. Johnson Ranch. Thanks to Eileen for hosting the Saturday Critters!




I think the grayish feathered ones are guinea hens? Anyone know for sure?

I miss having the time to see all your posts and leave some comments, so please be patient for my return when I get settled in from the move, and get my technology up and running again.

Hope your weekend is great!

Don't ask me about chickens :)

Yes guinea fowl. I love their feathers, but their heads are not so pretty!

I'm expecting much the same next week, LK. Happy Fourth!

Whatever kind of chicken they are, they are cute!

I don't really know many by their names, it seems there are new ones every time I go anywhere around them! They are fun to see!

TexWisGirl said...

that's the kind of 'fowl' mood i'd prefer to my own, sometimes. :)

Yep, guinea hens.

You got to see some interesting feathered friends. Happy Critter Day!

The hens remind me of some at a resort here in our cottage country.

If we have to wait for technology to start working correctly we may never hear from you again.

Oh what great critters. I love chickens. We lived for a short time in Colo. on a ranch. The owner had a turkey. It thought it was a dog! His name was MoBeats. I have never been to LBJ

Yes Guineas, they are marvelous tick eaters! Hope the settling in goes well:)

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Linda, Sounds like the move went well... I have been trying to catch up on some of your posts --since I've been AOL recently...Did you downsize ---or just move closer to family????? Whatever---I am happy for you, and I'm sure you are happy the worst is over!!!!! Blessings on you and your new home!

When I lived in Texas, we'd go to the hill country to see the Bluebonnets each April... Then last Sept, we went to Texas to visit my sons/families. One of Mark's daughters goes to Texas State in San Marcos. We drove there to see Bay Lee one day---and we ate lunch at Wimberly... Cannot believe all of that horrible damage from the flooding... Very very sad... Such a beautiful area of Texas.

Hugs,
Betsy

Birds look nice...enjoy you move.

We were just talking about chickens yesterday - apparently there are different breeds known for laying more frequently than others.

Cherdo said...

A man at the hatchery told me that "from the minute they are born, turkey's are looking for some reason to die." Apparently, a lot of novice farmers have trouble raising them. That was never my problem! Everything at my house lives to old age and has offspring. I had Silkies that were ridiculous - one hatched 18 chicks at a time.

What with the price of eggs lately it would be great to have a few chickens out back. Tom The Backroads Traveller
