This morning, Paul found an unexpected sight in the garage. The turkey dudettes broke free of their brooder last night. These three were strolling about the garage.
Another couple took up residence on top of the brooder.
They’d managed to slide off the screen top of the brooder just enough to break free. I think they’re telling us they’ve had enough of the being stuck in the garage.
Little did they know Paul had planned to move them out of the brooder today. The Freedom Ranger chicken house and run has been cleaned up and will now serve the turkey dudettes until harvest time. I hope they get a lot uglier before then.
