    :gig: Ralph, your wife sounds like a smart lady! Penguin is milking the attention. I love it!

    Feisty, if I was close I'd take your turkey! You aren't close to the central coast of California are you?

    I hope Turkules doesn't end up "hen pecked" with all his girls! :D I can't remember, is Turkules a Bronze? Have you used the Porters calculator to determine what kinds of babies he could produce? I've been obsessed with it since I finally figured it out. However, I got completely lost with the different types of Slates. But thanks to R2elk I think I'm starting to understand them better. I still can't figure out what type of Rusty Blue Lilac Lavender Tan Slates Ralphie has.

    Aurora. ...we need an update on Adam!

    Sounds like Penguin needs to play hide and seek in the oven. [​IMG]

    Oh my! Poor Penguin! I told Ralphie to drop him off in Memphis on his was south. But his wife loves Penguin. I think Ralph needs to embrace the Penguin-ness, doesn't seem he'll be going anywhere!

    Lol, there's not a whole lot to update. Just slow progress. I think he's starting to like when i come sit with him in the brooder. He's not as shy about coming over to try to nip at my ring or my tablet. He talks to me more often now and if i walk away after talking to him, he has gobbling fits lol. Right now, I'm sitting in the brooder and he's standing on my legs. He's a heavy brat!

    Best picture i could get of that lol.

    Every time anyone walks into the garage, this is what we see:

    I know that he hates to be alone and likes company but is still learning to trust. Move too fast or unexpectedly, he jumps away. Same with loud noises. He's still a bit iffy about being touched too but if he's in the mood, he really gets into it. I was rubbing under his wings the other day and he actually had his head down under my arm with droopy eyelids :)
