See, and that's just it too; we raise chickens and geese (in addition to the cattle). I know some folks who have turkeys and they don't seem to be
all that big of a deal. I'd be far more worried about a pissed off cock rooster on the warpath than I ever would be a turkey. Those bad boys can
inflict some serious damage now!
Funny story about a rooster we had once (I usually cull 'em...ALL). I was in the garage one day and this rooster came walking in. Some of his
wimmin's were happily walking around checking things out. He copped an attitude real quick and decided to attack. One of the dogs had a run in with
him previously and got bloodied up pretty good (lucky she didn't lose an eye), so he was on parole anyway. Only reason we even kept the bastage was
because he was cool lookin'.
Anyway, out of the corner of my eye I see this rooster puff up and make a B-line right for me. Like you, I don't run from food! Only thing I had
nearby was a shovel, so I grabbed it and teed off on his stupid ass right as he got to me! (BONG..ng..ng..ng) If he would have been a golf ball it
would have been a 350 yard shot! He goes skidding across the garage and under the four wheeler. I figured I killed him for sure, which was totally
fine by me! He was out like a light under the four wheeler. I walked over and grabbed the traffic cone we use to bleed 'em out and got out my knife.
About the same time that damn rooster came to, and jumped up. He jumped up so hard he whacked his head on the skid-plate of the four wheeler...and
right back down he went! I laughed so hard I almost hurt myself.
At work the next day some colleagues asked about the daily update on the mad rooster. "Well, he's in the fridge over there...for lunch! Chicken
noodle soup. Should be enough for everyone."
Some of the best chicken noodle soup I've ever made!!
True story too.
