Oh geez Ralph...i almost wet my pants!I had an Elmer Fudd moment tonight.
We are going to the Benton County Fair to look at the birds. My DW the WWD was working and when she got home she had some charting to finish. I was putting the birds away.
My main concern is the turkeys as they do not always like to go into the coop. I brings some corn/oats and BOSS into the run and dump it. I have 9 adult turkeys right now. I thought I had them all in the run. I counted heads, I only got 8. I counted again, 8.
I went looking all over the farmyard, no turkey hen. I looked in all the normal spots no turkey. Judy came out of the house and asked what I was looking for.
I told her, "I am missing a hen, I suppose she has decided to go broody on a nest somewhere".
She asks me " You're missing a hen?"
I said "Yep, I have spent 20 minutes looking for her and cannot see a sign of her".
Then she says " Does it happen to be the one following you?
I turn around and there she is 4 feet behind me. Just following me around the yard. Stupid bird!
