    Poultry Weight Loss Workout! Unique! Fun (okay, that's a lie) and it's guaranteed to work!

    1. open brooder coop door
    2. walk away for 3 seconds to check on a bawking meat bird
    3. allow 4 week old turkey poult to escape and run willy nilly
    4. chase said poult around 2 chicken runs and inside the big coop
    5. heart rate will increase to a good calorie burning intensity when a large cockerel attempts to eat poult...it's working!
    6. chase poult for about 23 minutes total (while keeping the cockerel either locked up or busy with watermelon and then prepare for cool down
    7. catch poult, resume natural breathing
    8. give poult a little smooch on the back
    9. place poult BACK into the designated 'safe' area, aka the brooder coop. LOCK DOOR!
    10. go have a sugary snack, shoot, you deserve it.

    rinse, lather and repeat...

    Last year I made the mistake of lifting the top off a LG bator full of 68 day old Bobwhites. Spent the next hour or better either crawling on hands and knees or bent over running while catching chicks smaller then a quarter. All the while keeping the cat from playing with the new running toys.

    Got them all and didn't step on a single one.
