A Revelation at the Chicken Coops

Posted by Sharkey

Driving around in the Kawaski the other day, Franny and I stopped by the chicken coops and sadly reminisced about our poor friends, the turkeys.  Franny nearly lost it when she heard a gobble-gobble, but I kept my head and made a rather pleasant discovery.

Franny, it's so sad to visit the yard where the turkeys used to live.  Remember what they told us before Thanksgiving?

Yikes!  What if we're being paid a visit by the turkey of Thanksgiving past?

I am SO out of here!!  Come on, Sharkey!  Let's run for it!

Francesca, don't be silly!  There is no such thing as a ghost turkey!  There must be a logical explanation for this.

Stop being a scardey-dog and let me get some height so I can find out what's going on.

We must be the luckiest turkeys in the world to have survived Thanksgiving!  GOBBLE-GOBBLE - We're going to live to be a ripe old age!  I'd better start fattening up my 401k.

GOBBLE-GOBBLE!  Let me sing you a song about the turkeys that avoided Thanksgiving.

Pssst...Sharkey, I'm glad we aren't seeing ghosts, but a new holiday season is about to begin.  Should we tell them?

No, Franny, let them think what they want.

It's not up to us, anyway.

All we can do is be their friends, for now.

  • What drama, what angst, who knew that the DW could become such a prime time drama. :wink: Looks like the turkeys are being fattened up for you-know-what. The three of you still have time to plot an escape for them. You could call it, "Escape from Bedford." Keep their spirits up, you never know.

    BTW, absolutely darling fleece pullovers on you two. Have a fab weekend everyone! :smile:

  • Have you ever seen a film called Chicken Run? It's British, and about a group of chickens who try the great escape before they are turned into meat pies! I think the turkeys should grab a table spoon and start digging under that wire before Christmas arrives. Dogs are good at digging, maybe you could help them F&S?

  • Hello Ladies,
    Good to see the turkeys are still around. Don't tell them Christmas is just around the corner. Let them enjoy things while the going is good. Great fleece pullovers. I need this in blue. Where can I send Mom to get it? Our Petsmart doesn't seem to have a great selection--she can never get anything to fit my neck. Mom and I noticed while reading your Mama's blog that G.K. was being walked on a leash. Is that why he doesn't appear in many Daily Wag blogs--because he tries to get away? Well he better take note from you girls, or he will never get his freedom. Have a great weekend all. Today is cookie baking. Yum!!!

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • F&S, why don't you make Turkey Vulture costumes for your friends, so that they can hide (and not end up as the stars of the Christmas dinner table)? Tell them that they're practicing for next Halloween, so that they won't panic. What do you think?

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Ghost of Thanksgiving past??? You two really can think of some strange things. I’ll bet that the turkeys are really getting fat by now and I don’t mean their 401K’s. I still haven’t driven Daddy’s truck as of yet. I almost did one day, but forgot the key. One day he will leave the key where I can get to it and away I’ll go. The weekend is here already, so everyone have a good weekend and stay warm you two, err three.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Oh Geesh! I was sooo happy to see the Turkeys still here, and then that last sentence just destroyed my happiness...OK I won't think about it, hey...maybe not even show us photos of these gorgeous Turkeys anymore, then we can't get attached to them as pets...right?

    You Frenchie's look darling in those pink outfits...adorable indeed!

    mommie delia and me meeuw Kitty will have visitors for 10 days, it's the grandog Shih-Zu Annie and grandcat Ragdoll Kyle...wonder how mommie is going to work this out!? bet I will have to sleep outside if I act out feral and don't behave...

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., My Oh My, you young ladies sure do look cute in those pink outfits! How much fun it must have been to find your great friends, the turkeys! Sharkey, you are so brave and thoughtful and it's nice that you could calm down Franny so she wouldn't worry about turkey ghosts! Now, I'm sure you two will find another way to protect your turkey friends from the next holiday dinner! Can't wait to see what you do! Have a great weekend, everyone! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • So cute. I miss my turkeys they dressed out at 47#,free ranged, but I miss them
