    Okay, so I have a single goose about 5 months old raised with a duck.
    Goose is still a love and sometimes I run around the yard playing with him/her. He really likes it when I put my arms out and flap them - he then will take his turn chasing me while flapping.

    It just occurred to me that I could be confusing the poor baby. Somebody please tell my that my actions aren't a "come on over for a good time" dance.

    Seriously. I love my fowl but not in *that* way.

    EVERYTHING ends up on AFV, even when it's short on the F.

    LOL!!

    Just don't get in the pond (that's where they mate). Or the kiddie pool. You'll be fine.

    I had a tame tom turkey who used to allow me to fondle his snood. One day I googled "snood" and discovered it was part of the male turkey's sexual display. I still feel shame.

    Yep - that could be a great pick-up line for bold ladies.

    *Woman walks up to man in bar*
    "Hey, honey. Can I fondle your snood?"

    *Man looks confused* [​IMG]
    (Of course, some men would go along with it even though they didn't have a clue, just assuming they had found a sure thing.)

    I googled Snood myself and although it isn't a sexual organ per se, the hens tend to prefer the big-snooded jakes. And other jakes are intiminated by a big snood.

    Who says that people and turkeys don't have things in common. [​IMG]
