Turkey Fornication ! ~ National Waffle Association ~

Good 34ยบ raining morning.
Looks like we've gotten 1/2"
since yesterday.
At 3:pm yesterday....
just over 1/4".

This morning....

Rains started in hard for awhile then tapered off and there was snow on the top of my mountain for a short time.

I looked out when it was raining pretty good and all the turkeys were just standing in it... except for the only smart one in the bunch, a hen....

Later I looked out in the back and OMG... fornicating turkeys! Not having been around fowl very much, except in passing, I had never realized how they mate. I was so blown away at this Tom standing on the back of the hen.....

He just kept standing there and sort of
"marching in place"....
until she lifted her tail and then..

When he was 'done' he walked away
and the poor hen looked as though she'd
been through he** !

He, of course, puffed all up showing off
as she snuck away....

Then one of his buddies showed up
to help him gloat! LOL

I have to say, Mother Nature sometimes blows my mind!

This morning I can see through the clouds my mountain is
covered with snow...
....and my daffodils are blooming...

Historically this date...
Lots of stuff happened, but nothing that flipped
my skirt enough to share!

Maggie only ate a little of the chicken I gave her
yesterday, so this morning I tried scrambled
eggs with a little bacon. She ate most of it. Yeah!

All I know. Nuff said. Ciao. Happy Friday!!!
