A Thanksgiving Poem

This is a picture of my husband's grandmother near Sheffield Iowa.
Bobs father used to tell me how his mom had a way of talking with the animals...looks like she was telling those turkeys they need to fatten up!
May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
and your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

My sister Karen from Medina Ohio wrote.."Those turkeys almost look tame! Little did they know what she going to do to them! My Grandma Justine was quite the poultry lady also...found many ways to make money for her family on their farm. Those ladies really had to work hard in everything they did. Happy Thanksgiving everyone."

I found this picture I have of my grandma Justine with her chickens. Wouldn't it be neat to own one of her little " chick houses "? I wonder what these are really called....does anyone have the name for them?
