Life and Death

When we choose to raise animals of any sort we not only have the ups of new life but we also have to deal with the downs of death. On our evening rounds my daughter discovered that one of our turkey's had died at some point in the day. It is always a sad time when you lose an animal but on this occasion the death was somewhat expected. The turkey had never fully thrived and it was never welcome among the others, maybe they knew something was not right. We can be happy in the knowledge that we gave it every chance and that it was well cared for.
