Turkey Parent...I'm guessing Neptune is reacting to a perceived threat. I'm sort of assuming here, but fowl probably feel vulnerable at night and i imagine would react in an aggressive manor, like a peck in the direction of the disturbance. Then again, he may be annoyed your waking him up. :lol: Regardless, it sounds like it works for your situation. Where have you've been lately? We need a few updated pictures!!

Finnie, that chicken mobile is hysterical. What is that thing?

Don't mean to be obsessed here....but I've never seen a turkey in such a hard molt. She has no tail. Just a bunch of pins. The tops of her legs are nothing but pins. Her back and chest are all pins. She's eating like a horse. I'm giving her some extra protein. I found this stuff at TSC that's 29% protein and have been giving her a bit of it. Just using it as a treat. I worry about going overboard. Their feed is 18%. I read such conflicting information about extra protein. I will say, she hasn't missed a beat. Her weight is good and she's as active & silly as usual. I'm used to my chickens turning into little squirrels when they are molting. But Annie will not be body shamed. I would think shes uncomfortable! It hurts me to look at her. Poor girl....
