Another Visit from the Turkey Ladies
Looks like blogger has its mojo back, so here is my Turkey Lady post, just a couple of days late. The Ladies, and the new chicks are still together. There are only a couple that I can tell apart these days, because the chicks have gotten just as big as the order birds. One is, of course, the Bearded Lady. She has the same kind of beard that Mr. Tom has. It's not that unusual for some hens to have one. The other is the Bedraggled One. You can see her in this picture, on the left, at the bottom, near the squirrel. I call her that because it looks like her tail is having a bad hair day. It's all messed up and pulled. It looks like, maybe, some critter was trying to get her, got just her tail and left it in this sad state. I'll only be able to tell her until new tail feathers come in.
It didn't take long for Mr. Tom to make the scene, after the girls showed up. He just struts up to them like he is King of the World, Master of the Universe. Who knows, maybe he is. There he is, way off behind the lilacs.
"Well, hellooooo Ladies"
Looks like the Ladies are paying their usual amount of attention to him. Master of the Universe -- indeed!
