If you had told me a year ago I would soon have a turkey family, I would have spat my wine in your face and collapsed in hysterics.
But life is full of those chance moments that change things forever, and on August 2, 2019, a friend messaged me and said “Would you like a gift?”
And so I became the proud owner of King Henry Fluffybum VIII, a rescue turkey, with more character than you would ever imagine, a Bowie fan, a footballer, a security guard and a great dancer!
And the rest was history, it’s kind of snowballed since then!
Two peas in a pod, aren’t they?
Six weeks ago, I found him his Queen Catherine… and today we finally became a proper family. I can spot three little chicks so far, and with six more eggs down there, there could be more to come! We will find out tomorrow!
Many friends have said they love hearing my turkey stories as I muddle my way through completely unknown territory, and so I thought today was the perfect day to start my new blog 😊🦃
With the new family descending on me, I’m planning it to be a mix of old and new until we’re up to date.
