Our turkey poults are almost 1 month old and growing everyday. We bought bronze breasted poults from the local feed store. They are large but still baby chicks in the brain. But they keep up with our chickens and go after all the bugs. They are smart enough to stick together and return to the coop at dusk. They come when called and can fly a little. I think they are all females. We will try to buy a straight run of 5 more turkeys to get a male or Tom. We are hoping to breed them. A free range turkey is a happy turkey. Even if they do not breed successfully, they will be great to have for dinner.
I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.
