I feel your pain lol! I thought I was being smart and covered my earring with my hand to avoid "turkey removal" and she bit the top of my ear - dang, I felt that for several days!
I make sure I have no jewelry in any of my piercing when I play with the turkeys....
I just went out and talked to my CX's. It is hard to be with them much right now, knowing Saturday they are headed to freezer camp.
Beings an jewelry free human, I have not had this problem, but Last year I thought I would hold some BOSS for Ethel so she could eat out of my hand....
I only did it once. Ethel has poor depth perception, I thought she was going to drive her beak through my hand.
Ouch!! Turkules is actually very gentle with his beak - so I was pretty surprised when a 9 week old could bring tears to my eyes (and put a new piercing in my ear). I've become decidedly more cautious about giving them shiny "targets" now lol.
Today was the first day this fall that I put on my white jacket with veil to check on the bee's honey production. I had a good laugh when the young turkeys freaked out and made mad dashes to get away from the monster.
BTW I pulled 4 supers full of honey so now I have even more work to do.
The scary monster in white!
It's amazing how much work there is to do in the fall.....
R2elk..I probably would have run screaming too if I saw you in bee gear for the first time!! What all do you do with the honey? Bees are so interesting. I learned a lot of things about them at a gardening seminar that I never knew.
We'll Ralph...didn't realize you were so close to Freezer Camp Day. How many will be going to camp?
I have 60 signed up for the bus trip.
The honey my bees produce is so much better than anything that you can buy in a store that there is a very big demand for the honey my bees make. Between relatives and friends, I only manage to keep enough for cooking purposes. It is a super light colored honey that is even better than pure sweet clover honey. What really sucks is that I can't have any to just eat myself because honey is after all just pure sugar and I have diabetes.
