    Missing from the brooder I thought “well how the hell did he get out?” After looking through the garage and calling out to him “like some idiot thinking he would answer” or at least come out of where ever he was. I looked the brooder over again and was certain he didn’t get out. Then I thought no way! But sure enough I lifted the lid to the feeder and low and behold there he was snoozing away inside the feeder bucket. Wish I would have gotten a picture of that! So the feeder I made needed to accommodate the ducks as well which grew 10 times faster but I never thought one of the chicks or Turks could get it like that. It was getting low on food so maybe that’s how he could fit. But he’s all fine and I will be sure to keep the feeder topped off till they are to big to crawl back in. Here is the feeder bucket set up.

    Poultry -- more entertaining than television!! And, more dramatic!

    Glad he's okay; thanks for the photos. Is it me, or does he have an ornery look in his eye?
