I am an animal lover at heart and four years ago, when I first saw the Lady Gouldian finch, I couldn't believe the vivid and bright colors this little bird displayed. I have always been drawn to colorful things and this little finch had the most beautiful colors. I also learned this type of finch has different color combinations based on its genetic makeup. That meant more beautiful colors and I instantly became a huge fan of the Lady Gouldian. I immediately began to research the Lady Gouldian, and soon after, I also became the owner of my own Lady Gouldian finches.

Last night I was moving pictures off my old computer onto my laptop. I ran across a picture that was so incredibly cute, in the ugliest kind of way. This was one of our baby turkens that hatched last spring. For those who do not know what a turken is.....A turken is a chicken with a naked neck like that of a turkey. Some say it is the result of crossbreeding a turkey and a chicken, but from what I've read, there are no turkey genetics involved. They may not be the prettiest things to look at, but they do make a great conversation piece. I never thought in a million years I would ever own a chicken, or a turken at that. The things your children talk you into..................
