    [​IMG] After a totally sucky day at work i come home to take care of the animals, and meet 2 people comming to buy a turkey. I round them all up in thier coop, and all of a sudden they spook and the biggest one breaks through the screen of the only window. what then another follows......how convienent the two biggest toms now... I am in the run keep in mind trying to shoo them in the coop......my dad standing there saying oh they are getting out!!!!!! no @#$% now can you STOP THEM!!! a third breaks free before he can get over to the window.....just great now im out 150$ well run to the house...take a shotgun to the only one we could find in the pitch black with a GOOD FOR NOTHING FLASHLIGHT!!!!!! wow and i smell like complete [​IMG] i dont know what......turkey crap stinks more then that distinct pig smell.....anyway ive had it with these patheticly stupid birds...

    Do you ever get those days when you just want to give up? sell everything and actually come home from work and relax? today im really not wanting the responsability that never leaves us farmers. My two biggest birds i have been growing since april fly off into the night. these are wild turkeys too...flighty son of a guns... now ive got left 2 small 6 lb hens if that....they grow terrible and one medium tom we shot. Craigslist buyer blew me off too as well the girl comming for the hen. the other guy showed hour late after waiting around...but atleast he showed with his guatamalan packed civic and cardboard box he stuffed his turkey in and threw it in the trunk next to the baby carrier.

    Just not a good day!!!!!!!!

    Sorry your day was such a mess. I hope you have a better day tomorrow. I don't have many animals,but there are days when I want to get rid of all but my lap cat. Sometimes it does get to be too much,but usually better days come.If they didn't I really would get rid of many of them.No reason to suffer if you can opt out!
