Dang Judy is tough! And Ralph, treats on the deck...tsk, tsk!

So it was getting toward "Turkey Tuck-In" time and here is Daisy waiting for me on the porch rail. Annie was sitting on one of the steps. They are pretty good about bedtime. They gather on the porch & follow me to the pen. Well, ok...they do get a bedtime treat. ;)

I was trying to get a shot of her punk mohawk in all its glory. But it didn't show up very well.

That's a great idea Ralph! Party at Coffee's!!

So I was at the kitchen sink. It was close to turkey tuck in time and both girls were roosting on my back porch rail. So fluffed up they looked like a couple of linebackers. Was just heading to the door to walk them to the coop when they both stood up, fanned their tails & started barking loudly. Some weird looking guy was walking down my driveway. As soon as he saw them he wheeled around & ran back out to the street. By the time I got out the door to look down the drive, turkeys in tow, the guy jumped into a truck & took off. Not sure what he was doing, or who he was, but the girls scared the crap out of him. Wonder if he even realized what they were. He didn't see them until they started screaming and he literally jumped back & ran. Honestly I think they are scarier looking than my barking aussies.
