Attack Turkey

My lovely boy Clyde has decided he likes me, Mr Shan and our next door female neighbour. The male neighbour, he will occasionally try and peck... everyone else, he wants to eat for breakfast! I had to lock him up yesterday when the window cleaners came round and stop him from eating the courier today. Bonkers.

i'm glad that title is in poultry not politics Laughing

there are some advantages to a guard turkey so long as welcome visitors are aware of his attitude
Shan

I do act a buffer. Laughing
He's normally so sweet though, it's quite odd seeing him turn into a savage beastie. Should have called him Jekyl & Hyde..

PS I did carefully consider where this thread should go. Laughing Shocked

My friend has a rhea that hates men. It's hilarious to watch unless you are the person it's trying to kill. A bit like Rod Hull but with more swearing.

Laughing Clyde mutters to himself... he attacks males and females alike. He doesn't discriminate. Laughing He also recognises cars. When Mr Shan gets home, Clyde stomps down the drive, looks at the car and then stomps back up. With everyone else, he gets ready to ambush them. I know I shouldn't find it funny but I really do. See, not good with humans. Embarassed

The turkey saga goes on... the neighbour had to rescue a courier yesterday. Apparently he was practically climbing our drainpipe to escape Clyde. Shocked I'm going t have to set up hurdles as a temporary measure until we can install a gate blocking Clyde from the drive!

I'm sniggering, but they can become a pain. I had a cockerel that attacked people. He didn't bother me, so long as I was carrying something (anything!) but hated my mother. He took no noice at all of the men around the place, nosed at me and disappeared as long as I had something in my hand and ran at my mum from the furthest corners of the field. Then he went for an (accompanied) small child and after that he was swiftly penned. Which happened to save him from the fox attack-before-last, so he shouldn't moan.

He wasn't at all vicious. He mostly attacked from from behind, and got between your legs, and tripped you up. No scratching or pecking, just under your feet. Before that I had a welsummer bantam that really was vicious and drew blood at knee height. I had to back him into a corner with a sheet of mesh before I could go in to feed him!

Well, defended the postman and another courier plus one of the neighbour's visitors yesterday... Embarassed

even if he is employed as a breeder it is worth considering that the next generation might be rather "keen" .

much like bodger's wild goose, nat's rapist rooster and my killer kerry there are times when a recipe book is a better option than adapting to a war footing.
Shan

I'm not using him for breeding. He doesn't manage to 'finish' the job.

per kilo of meat:

the juice of one lemon
tsp garam massala
tsp smoked papriks
tsp freshly ground cumin seed
chilli to taste
a little worcester sauce or garam

dismantle beast and marinate 1" cubes overnight
thread on skewers
brush with oil
lightly salt ( salt in the marinade makes bird meat tough )

grill or bbq a few mins per side until cooked through

serve with flatbreads and a nice salad

perhaps invite the posties and the neighbours Twisted Evil

That's dire.

No... he's a pet! He saves me from talking to myself. Laughing Besides, he watches TV with our neighbour. I'm not even joking!
