No idea what they were doing... but all the girls were all in the back part of the yard. Usually, knowing their bedtime, they are hanging out by the coop. I didn't see them back there so called for them. And here they came! Running those fat drumsticks off. I was laughing so hard I had to sit down. Flapping & yapping the whole way. I just love turkeys!

Major breakthrough! I was sitting on the bench. Daisy on one side, Marigold on the other. One of the neighbors wandered in. Marigold was going to jump down but I put my hand on her back & she stayed. Neighbor sat down next to her & she let her pet her. That's major! Then my neighbor started feeling her & speculating how many people she could feed. Sigh.....

Glad you're feeling better and back.
I think I have seen your posts about Athena on FB... Bourbon right?

Yes she sleeps with me, either wearing a custom built diaper that my wife makes it she sleeps on a puppy training pad. She refuses to sleep in my nightstand like Mars used to, but even Mars had her special pad for the mess. Neptune was the first to sleep in my armpit at night and he wouldn't take no for an answer either. I miss that goofy bird. My wife misses him but is glad he's gone at the same time. He wouldn't let her touch me for any reason

Rained most of the day yesterday. Same for today. Did take Daisy for a quick stroll during a break in the rain. Blossom actually followed us half way down the driveway. The others stood at the gate. Slowly they are getting comfortable coming down the drive. Neighbors are used to seeing Daisy....they'll freak when they see the rest of the flock. Got a dozen eggs ready for my baker friend. She's thrilled...especially with wedding season approaching. I got eggs all over the place. She couldn't be happier.

They can be such sweethearts. Neptune sounds like an overzealous protector :D I can see why the wife has mixed feelings
