Never Visit a Turkey Right Before Thanksgiving!

Posted by F&S

You probably know by now that Martha raises a lot of chickens so that she can enjoy and share all of their delicious eggs.  She also has some Pomeranian geese and they make so much darn noise that we, Frenchies, just can’t figure out what the attraction is there.  Then there are the six heritage breed turkeys that were delivered last summer.  We decided to go and visit them because they’re sort of friendly, but, when we did, we heard some rather disturbing news.

Hey Francesca!  Stop the Kawasaki here so that we can say hello to our friends, the turkeys.

Hi there, turkey-lurkey.  How are things going down here in the coop?

Well, Francesca, since you asked - not so well.  We, turkeys tend to be a bit nervous at this time of year.

Well, what's up with that?

Sharkey, have you heard of a little holiday called Thanksgiving?

Yeah, everybody's so darn thankful on Thanksgiving!  But there's no reason on earth for us to be thankful!

GOBBLE GOBBLE!!  Not when WE TURKEYS are the main event!  And I don't mean that in a good way!  GOBBLE GOBBLE!!

Oh no, Sharkey!  This sounds very dire.  Come to think of it, what ever happened to the turkeys that were here last year?

Francesca, that is a really good question and I don't even want to think about the answer.

I suppose if this group disappears, then we can just put two and two together and be thankful that there's no holiday involving French bulldogs!

  • I thought the turkeys would be nervous because the two of you were there on a "visit." Let's just say that the turkeys have had a wonderful year living on your beautiful farm and leave it at that. :wink:

    Where oh where is GK these days? I miss seeing your little brother. I like it best when the three of you are together. :smile:

  • F&S ....LOL! I almost fell off my chair reading the 'title" to your blog! Keep your "tails" flowing. I love reading your blog!

  • F & S this is a very sad story. The poor Turkeys will be all gone next week. How can you have a turkey as a pet then eat it? My mom said she couldn't do it, she becomes too attached to her animals.

    We have turkey once a year at our house and it seems to last forever. You have the Thanksgiving dinner then the leftovers the next day. Then you have turkey sandwiches and finally the turkey soup - enough with the turkey by day 4 give me some beef!!!

    Hey I have an idea tell Martha to let her turkeys live and the next time those wild turkeys show up in my yard I'll shoot a few and drive them to Bedford. We'll get rid of the varmits and provide dinner for Martha not to mention save the pets :)

  • Oh dear those poor turkeys! It's good that I'm a vegetarian, turkeys won't have to fear me :P I hope they've all had a good and happy life before they head towards the oven!

  • OMG, those MS Turkeys aren't pets? it breaks my heart, but then that's just me...

    I pass a truck of fowl or any animal to the slaughter house and swear I will never eat them again...till the next time! I honestly don't want to see my meal alive before hand...it took every thing for me to eat a beef from next door at our Ranch in Missouri, it was hard to disassociate the live and the dead...we have many wild Turkey's come in our backyard and never thought about eating them...guess I could be a vegetarian.

    shoot I'm sad for those MS Turkeys. :(

  • Hello Ladies,
    Oh my, this is very distressing. Maybe you girls can stage a break out and sneak and release the turkey gang. If they are pets and you get to know them, then they shouldn't be dinner. Tasha used to lay in front of the oven while the turkey was cooking on Thanksgiving--a true bird dog one would say.

    I am settling in front of the fire for my morning nap, so I better go. Take care and have a great Wednesday.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hi Girl Friends & G.K., Reading your blog post and looking at these beautiful photos was really fun until Mom and I started reading the photo comments. Maybe you girls can talk to Martha and tell her you would love to see these turkeys for years to come. You could suggest that she buy fresh, ready to roast turkeys and leave your friends where they are. How right you are-we don't want any holiday where people eat Frenchies or any other kind of dog, cat, etc. Hope everyone has a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Noooooo

    F&S please save the turkey's!

    Eat cold cereal for Thanksgiving this year.

    Frenchies save the Turkeys! :)

  • This is so so sad. Go Veg and leave those sweet turkeys alone!

  • This is not my favorite post. I was hoping that F&S would save the day and demand for the turkeys to stay. Here's hoping for a part two of this post! F&S with little protest signs in front of the coop??
