Wah!!!! JP yo' mean!!! But I say that with that secret smile on my face.....maybe one day.....no more trips with birds in tow.
Oh Irwin, if you saw the size of this bird, you wouldn't even have blinked an eye at it. It was only 8 weeks old or so, just had all its feathers and not even the size or weight of a Cornish game hen, couldn't be bothered. I was busy anyways, hee, hee, had an agenda, had to clean out duck and chicken poop out of their pen before it became poopsicles!!! Which is what things are now out there, it is awful, looks like a million little golf balls all over the place. The turkeys' poo is roundish and has a white dollop on the top of it, almost looks good enough to eat, hee, hee :roll: 8-)
Oh Shawn, do you think that someone came into your yard and got the babies.
We had something horrible happen the other morning. Not sure if I posted about it or not, but my Niece's three Muscoveys, (drake and two ducks) somehow got all the way out of her yard, down our long driveway and onto the road. Someone ran them over. Three dead ducks (these are mature, they were born August 7, the day after the turkey babies). One right after the other. It was sickening and so saddening. It broke my heart for this poor little gal. She worked so hard to raise these little dudes, and they had become so people friendly. We have a mystery here, unsolved and a horrible one. The distance from her duck yard to the road is a long, long ways, and a very meandering trail to boot. It is probably the distance of two acres length. How the ducks got to the road, obviously following the driveway drives me nuts!!!! Ducks are too curious to go straight along the driveway as they must have, they have to stop, eat, catch a bug, do all kinds of things, not head off down to the busy road. Oh well, we will never know how this happened, just another page to turn in that page on the farm. I think that she is done with raising the baby Muscovys, the second time demise has reached these little dudes, and I think her heart is too heavy and sore. She will be OK, I know that though. Have that beautiful and most wonderful day, loving all our lives that we live, love and share, health. Cindi
