HE ALSO LIKES TO HANG WITH BUDDY OUR DOG AND KEEPS JUMPING ON HIS BACK .. WE LOVE THE BRAT HE IS QUITE SWEET .. WE ARE LOOKING FOR A ABOUT FOUR BIGGER EGG LAYERS NOW AND WISH i COULD GET ANOTHER BABY TURKEY .. WE LOST PEEPS 2 DAYS AGO HAVE NO IDEA HOW ? hE WAS IN cage with sam for days and they were fine getting along fine . Scott thinks Sam may have smothered him because he never shuts up hence we called him peep. .. Very sad , Our supplier says they doubt they will get anymore baby turkeys this year : ( so if anyone knows of anyone with a friendly or baby turkey male of females ( we have a male white broad breasted Hank who needs company.) he is one of our favorites ..

    I have a Polish Rooster that lost his girlfriend. They were very close and Elvis is just lost without her. I see you have silkies and you mentioned polish. I sure would like to get at least 1 young female for him. Let me know if you have one you could part with.

    Yeah Tina Turner was really sweet. She liked to be cuddled. It really broke my heart to lose her. I definitely take the coyotes more seriously now. My dog shadow has learned to watch the flock. He lays in the middle of them in the yard, that is unless Elvis decides to get ornery and does a Ninja attack. I swear he made a crane attack on my dogs back, I thought I was watching the Karate Kid. I laughed so hard I almost peed myself. I wish I had a video. Feathers extended and up, standing on one leg, making a funny attacking squawk as he jumped through the air and landed on my utterly surprised dog. He just jumped up like , what the hell just happened , then walked away. Elvis was still up on one leg, with extended wings and his crown fluffed out like I had never seen before. It was priceless.
