That's right, WE.
I wasn't about to let the Darlin' Man come across another "great deal". We needed chicken scratch, and , by golly, we were going to get chicken scratch and ONLY chicken scratch!
All the times I ranted and raved about the Darlin' Man carting home yet another critter and all of you telling me to always go with him when he went to the feed store to prevent this.
But, seriously, it was not my fault, I swear!
Let me explain...
I got a bit side-tracked getting the chicken scratch and decided to get some game cock feed for the peafowl while we were there.
In the meantime, the Darlin' Man wandered out back...where the livestock pens are.
He comes back up front and pays for the feed, we go out to the car and load it up.
We get in the car and he says; "Hang on, we gotta pick up something out back."
Turns out, he made a deal without my knowing about it.
He ran into the guy that bought Cornelius and the guy informed him that a friend of his fell in love with Cornie at first sight, so he sold Cornie to them. Cornelius is now a HOUSE PET! He sits on the couch and watches t.v. and has his own little bed, etc.
Okay, how the hell did that translate into a new turkey?
Well, our friend had been contacted by someone that wanted a baby buck goat for a petting zoo.
They wanted one they could bottlefeed and that would be gentle.
So, he will be around later to pick up Morpheus.
Oh yeah, back to that...
The guy that wanted Morpheus just happened to have a turkey hen. He would trade her and some cash for Morpheus.
Yep, that's how I ended up holding a rather large and mildly agitated turkey hen on my lap for the ride home....
Trixie and Timothy were a bit startled at the new arrival...well, Timothy was delighted, Trixie a little less so.
Well...sigh....we'll see how this works out....
I have to admit, Tinkerbelle is lovely. And fairly docile. And she and Trixie seem to be getting along well.
