We were bent over laughing at him ( hope his ego was not too bruised!).
Cat was having a game of chicken bowling. Finn does that on rare occasion but he usually just lays nearby and watches them. He especially likes to hang around the Belgian D'anvers for some reason.

The geese r Africans. When that little bull was first born hos mom beat him and threw him against a wall and that is all I can thinks happened. His mom has fone that with all her calves and is evil for the first day. But if u stand with a pitch fork and put her in a pen with the calf she will take it.
I'm not up on my geese too much, guess I need to study breeds more on those. I love the turkey's coloring.
Good grief, weird mama cow behavior! Like some broody hens, they can be odd at times, I guess, like the ones who kill the chicks as they hatch or just afterward. Thanks for all the pictures! I love that you have such variety.
