    Turkeys are so cool! My elderly neighbor came down to see them. Daisy hopped right up between us on the garden bench & sat down. He sat petting her for an hour. In his mid 80's and had never petted a turkey. Annie stood in front of us barking like a seal until he took his hat off. Then she was fine. And of course the chickens were hanging out too. But Daisy was so sweet with him!

    My turkeys were not COOL today, they were little belly buttons.... (A belly button is something everyone has yet will not get me double secret probation for calling them it)

    I wanted to shove a stick up each up their belly buttons! They decided they did not like my BA rooster today. They spent the whole day chasing him and beating on him. He stayed close to me, but I would have to drop my work to chase them away. The Rooster can take any one of them but not 10 against 1. I ran all of them off except Ginger when he was being a PITA.

    He did not realize he had no "back up" until the rooster hit him. He ran crying and screaming from the fight. Ginger started it so I did not yell at the rooster. BTW my DW named him Ginger not me. Ginger is my Jersey Buff.

    It was a long day working on the turkey house and protecting the rooster at the same time.

    Not sure if this worked out the way I wanted it to but hopefully the video uploaded. Its just a short 30 second clip of him when he first got in there.

    This is right after I set him down. He was rather confused, as were all the girls.

    Eve was first to investigate.

    And Pebbles first (and only) to challenge lol

    I have another video uploading now of him strutting around like crazy. I'm not sure how long it'll take to load but I'll get it up as soon as it's done provided that I did this right lol

    Poor Adam looks so confused. How about Pebbles explaining who is boss! Love the pictures of all the girls staring down at him! Funny shot! Video is great! Can't wait for the other one!

    Ralph...sounds like the turkeys were out for some fun! What breed is a "BA"? Ginger is a great name! I sort of feel bad for Ginger....

    Tell me Penguin wasn't part of the mob.....
