    We were processing the last of the turkeys yesterday. The last of the turkey hens went into an empty coop and as I went in to catch her, I noticed an Icie rooster in with her. That rooster must be pretty frustrated (I do have too many Icie roosters) because he was most vigorously attempting to breed her. He actually did nail her a few times. She was squawking and running all over the place. He was silent but outrunning her most of the time. I have to give him credit! But it was very funny to watch. I had to reach over him in a corner to catch the hen and he followed her all the way out of the pen.
