Ginger had his first indoctrination into becoming a lapper today.
It went fairly well. I had to catch him (twice) in a landing net. He escaped the first time.
When I held him he looked scared but did not fight me. I petted him and he tolerated it. I then sat him on the end gate of my Pickup, he did not fight to leave me, I petted him and rubbed his back, I touched his head and wings. He did flinch a tad when I reached for his head.
The whole ordeal was maybe 5 minutes as I did not want to stress him. I think he would make a great lapper in hardly anytime at all.
It is going to be so hard to take his head. I think I would have more trouble taking his head than I would Penguins.
Why is it I have 3 Toms from last years hatch with names and only one hen has a name? Something is not right here.
