April 5, 2013

Sometimes it gets pretty fowl around here.  And lately, it seems like the fowl have declared war.

Case in point… our Bourbon Red tom turkey has decided he’s one tough turkey.  Every time I go into the pen with him and the hen, I have to carry a broom to fend him off while I fill up the feed bowls.  Isn’t there some kind of adage about not biting the hand that feeds you?  Seems to me that should carry over to a winged assault as well.

Now to find someone who sells fish in smaller quantities.  We don’t need lots of 100!
