So my DH told me trying to trick her would never work and only make things worse. Tomahawk and my daughter were pals. She would know.
Since I'm pretty sure CPS would be contacted (even if for medicating a broken heart) in the event I give my 9 year old vodka, I am going to take her with me to pick out another hen after school.
I am heartbroken listening to Banshee cry for her. I went out back and he hopped on my lap and snuggled in. Every couple of minutes he would pop his head up and call her.
I hope he is easily distracted with a new love interest.
I am sure given time Banshee will do fine. I am glad to hear your DH and I are on the same page with parenting advice.
Banshee will grow to like the new hen right now he is lonely. The problem with turkeys is their brains are not very big but they have huge hearts, so they think with their hearts.
