Fighting Toms

The turkeys are being a pain lately, especially the toms. Constantly fighting. It’s usually just lots of bluster and throwing shoulders at each other, but it’s getting more serious these days. I’m starting to see bloody snoods and blood on white feathers. It’s also really loud and for some reason, gets on the Icies very last nerve, so they bark and bark at them.

When it gets bad enough to bug me from inside the house, I’ll bring the Icie girls out and let them break it up for a bit. They are far more gentle about it than Bjarki, so I don’t let him do it unless the girls need reinforcement. The girls love it, though. Sanctioned turkey chasing!

Bloody snoods is the perfect band name, according to Frank. Ha!
