UFC – turkey division

 

Have you ever seen a turkey smackdown?

I hadn’t, and to be honest….

I’m not anxious to see it again.

When there’s snow on the ground, we get wild turkey visitors. They come in for the bird seed that falls under the feeders and while the husband will shoo them off due to the copious amounts of poo they leave behind….

I usually enjoy their comical turkey antics.

Until yesterday.

When it turned into a brawl.

 

 

It went on for what seemed like forever.

Two combatants, who I assume were males fighting for spring mating rites…

Went at it hard and heavy.

They bounced, and flew, and scrambled, and chased each other all over the back yard…

Until this happened.

Not sure if you can tell by the picture…

By one bird literally had his beak down the throat of the other.

They seemed to be stuck… and were thrashing like crazy.

It was horrible to watch.

While I usually don’t interfere in nature, after what seemed like an eternity I finally went outside and made some noise.

It startled them and thankfully they broke apart.

I’m sorry, but no amount of sex is worth that!

I believe it.

Damn!

Those little buggers are mean.

  1. My dad raised fighting chickens when I was a boy and, if one would get out of his pen, he fight the others through the wire until one of them died and then move onto the next one if the dead one wasn’t him. It wasn’t pleasant to watch, definitely.
