Turkeys on Pasture

It looks like we may be in for a rather warm week. You didn't think a Georgia summer was gonna go quietly into the night did you. Summer around here usually doesn't end without a fight, so I thought a picture of our growing turkeys out on pasture would be a good reminder that Fall is just around the corner. Once they are big enough to go out to pasture, they only need shelter from the rain and sun, and a roost to sleep up off of the ground. We built these mobile turkey shelters a few years ago, and the turkeys love them. We can hook to them and pull them to different areas of the pasture, giving them a fresh portion of pasture each time. Unfortunately we lost one shelter due to a wind storm last year. (not during the growing season, so no turkeys were injured). That's why you can see the orange straps in the picture anchoring this one down.
