We went to see my friend with the pet turkey today. This is her with her best friend, a rescue hen. They cuddle. (D’awwww). They’re largely inside pets now.

Yes. I asked. They just wipe it up. Bit of a hippie, this one.

She had a whole flock of rescue chooks at one time, but the fox got most of them. This girl was spared because the other chickens didn’t like her so she was asleep on the porch by herself when tragedy struck.

There’s some kind of life lesson there, but I can’t work it out.

Miz Turkey was amazingly vocal this time. It wasn’t gobbles, either. It was little whistly sounds. She was trying so hard to talk. Then she walked over and got a big beakful of my upper arm and gave it a good shake.

Ah. Hungry.

The lady would maybe like to take one of my four cockerels and I’m tempted, but they do seem to have an awful lot of accidents re: fox. I’d have to live with the fact I sent my boy into the danger zone. Also, these two are so sweet together, I wonder if a loud-ass rooster is really wanted in the mix.

I’ll have a think. Good weekend, everyone!

About adding that loud-ass rooster — my experience is not with poultry, but pretty much every time I’ve seen a new critter added to a well-bonded compatible duo, it has had unhappy results. I wish it weren’t so, but there it is.

Is “loud-ass rooster” the same as “high volume cοck”?

Sorry. I really didn’t intend to be a thread killer.

Don’t think I’d give her the cockerel.

Sounds as if you might possibly cut out the middle owner, and middle eater, and just have the lad for supper yourselves.

ek, can’t even think about it, I’d be a lousy rancher/farmer.

Dammit! Missed my chance to pick miserable lefty Ed Asner in Dead Pool.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
