    that they'll try to get through a hole in the fence by pushing, then backing up and pushing and then backing up....for a solid fifteen minutes....

    yet so smart that they realize that they can't get up on the top roost without a humans help, so they'll jump up on the feeder and wait for the human to come and give them a boost up???? [​IMG]

    Yep, my baby turken roo. He's just a few fries short of a happy meal. [​IMG]

    Your turken roo and the fence reminds me of the silly criminal clips. The ones where the criminal runs into a locked door, hits the floor, get up, runs at door again only to once again be on the floor. [​IMG]

    Not so different from people - some chickens. [​IMG]

    Good Morning Gritty

    Just what makes that little ol' roo,
    think he can push a fence thru,
    everyone knows that roo
    can't push a fence thru,
    But he's got high hopes,
    He's got high hopes,
    High apple pie in the sky hopes,

    Imp- Sorry first post of the day [​IMG]
