Détente

All is well in the turkey world once more.


After several days of Tom (the aggressor) being "sequestered"
(placed on house arrest, actually),
the boys have seemingly worked out their differences.


You will notice in this picture, that Tom is all puffed up,
with red snood, head and neck.


While Chuck has taken on a more submissive look...


with snood held firmly against his forehead,
no red visible on his face or neck.

In essence, Tom has won the duel,
luckily without a fight.

Both boys have large black scabbed areas on their snoods
which will heal with time.
But for now, they look a little rough around the edges.


Whenever there is anything stressful on the farm,
like dueling turkeys,
I head for the pigpen.
Time spent with my girls is always peaceful and sweet.


Sweet, sweet piggy friends!



PS:

Missy has lost her mucous plug, so she should be going into labor very, very soon.

I'm glad Tom and Chuck have settled their differences without further incidents. As for Ginger and Maryann, sweet friends are always the best friends.

I think some chapters of a book have already been written.
Does the color of the turkey red "gobble", (can't remember the name,) actually turn color?
I enjoy the Bee Haven stories . . .
I hope all goes well in the birthing . . .

OOOWWW! Scabbed snoods sounds painful, but I'm glad your sequester has ended peacefully. If only reality could work that way.
I cannot even imagine Ginger & Mary Ann biting & snaping at one another like Chuck & Tom. Those two sweeties seem to be the picture of civility at all times.
Can't wait to see what the kids look like. We are sending Missy positive thoughts that she have a perfectly normal labor & birth that ends with a healthy kid(s). We can't wait to see the newest farm fur babies.
