New Farm Animals

We have some new animals here on the farm. We purchased some guineas and baby turkeys last week. The turkeys are just babies and were just a few days old when we got them, but the guineas are older.
The guineas are going to make good "watch dogs" as they like to make a lot of noise. Everytime we walk out into the yard they tend to make noise and let us know that they are watching. I have heard that they keep the prey animals away from the chickens and stuff and that is why I decided we needed them. Living with woods surrounding the property makes the farm a nearby meal for coyotes.
The turkeys are going to be a 4-H project for Bridget. She will also be showing a pony or horse as well as rabbits, chickens, and possibly her dog. She is going to be very active when fair season arrives and I am sure we will spend a lot of time there.
Wishing everyone a good week.
