Turkey on a Hot Tin Roof

I looked out the kitchen window the other day and what did I see...


 That's right,an escapee!



Mr. Young and  Juicy thinks he is doing something big. Little does he know if he hits the ground in this yard he has about as much chance of escaping Weenie's bite-o-death as he does at making it past Thanksgiving!



Yes, I have a special rehabilitation program for trouble making poultry! Be it turkey,chicken or duck! I have named this program "Supper"!



  For now Mr.Young and Juicy will get his wing clipped and put back in the Turkey yard...a sort of stay of execution!


 Oscar Peterson loved the wing clippings!



 Well, at first taste he kind of made a yak face....


 But he was not going to let that stop him from thoroughly attacking those feathers!


Oscar is a mighty hunter in training! Farm kitties have to be ferocious after all!

It looks like he found his own private stash of acorns up on that roof. He's probably not too happy about being grounded.

I have the same rehabilitation program around here for the roosters or hens that start eating eggs. .... Love the kitty!

now you just made me hungry for Turkey!! I raised a dozen one year and it was definitely worth it...mmmmmmm!! I had turkeys up on the barn and all over the place..the thing was when we caught them to do the prep for freezer, I was shocked at how much they weighed! How in the world do they take flight??
And kittie photos are purrrfect...he was having a blast!

THANKS for the grin on a cold day in Virginia!! I actually saw a (wild) turkey this morning--But it wasn't sitting on a roof!

Enjoy your evening!!

Too funny. Never a dull moment on the Laughing Duck farm ;)

Oh, all you guys are laughing at the turkey getting "his" and I'm all sad!! I'm a city girl through and through. :( I know,I know. I eat turkey and all that, but I still feel bad when my dinner has personality.

Get those feathers, Oscar!

Verde Farm said...

What a great post!! The turkey shots are so great--love the one of him hopping off the roof but the cat and feather pics totally top that. Those are the cutest. So cat like :) LOL

I loved this post! That poor turkey... he has no clue. Oscar Peterson sure had a good laugh over it all... lol. Thanks for sharing.

To quote a cat I know, "and those feathers in my mouth would put me in a happy frenzy." That's Bingo's line from his book. I know that look!

And Love that tin siding. I've been considering different sidings for a new house and that is on my list. We have a renovated silo building (offices and restaurants) in town and it's exterior is all tin. I love how it looks.
