Monday Mischief: Unexpected Dinner Guests

on November 3, 2014

Hi friends! Daisy here.

We had some unexpected guests visit us for dinner the other day. If you ask me, I think it’s rude to just pop in on someone for dinner. Shouldn’t they let us know they were coming so we could make sure we had enough for them to eat?

Well it turns out we had plenty for them. Just one came at first….

Proud as a peacock...er, I mean turkey....

Apparently Daddy had put a lot of grass seed down in the dirt patch where we had the tree removed, and Mr. Turkey discovered it. But he’s a generous old dude and shared it with his clan:

Everyone came to the table for their own pre-Thanksgiving "paleo" dinner.

He must be the grandpappy of them all, because he was the biggest and his tail feathers were a gorgeous variety of patterns and colors. The white one was also incredible. Even after the rest of the team left, Grandpa stayed and ate for the better part of an hour.

Fortunately Daddyย put a LOT of seed down and we still have a nice velvety covering of green on the patch. But it was fun to watch and a good excuse to bark LOUD!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

We’re part of the Monday Mischief blog hop!

    Did you get to chase them? Roxy and Torrey have both chase turkeys in the canyon. Of course they lose.

    They are beautiful. All the turkeys around here are white and raised strictly for the main course.

      This was the first time we’ve seen a white turkey. We went to a turkey farm once – there were hundreds of them – and they were all brown. I wonder what the difference is?

    They’re a little early, but if you opened the door I have a funny feeling they wouldn’t want to be invited for dinner

    Thank you for loving my little storyโ€“you have a great blog!

  5. Kilo would have had a field day chasing them!

  6. Oh MY Doodle – where do you live? I’ve never seen a real turkey before in my life (I’m a true city girl) – how cool is that?

      We’re in central New Jersey. We get deer and an occasional pheasant running through our yard, but it’s only been the past few years that we’ve been getting wild turkeys. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. scarlybobs says:

    They are gorgeous, I have a soft spot for chickens and turkeys! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Oh that is one big tom and it looks like some hens. Your Dad did feed them well ๐Ÿ™‚ We have a LOT around here and the Girls Love to yell at them too! Your tom was gorgeous!

    Sweet Daisy those are some most interesting unexpected guests at your place. It was nice of you to let them eat some of the seed. We can tell they really enjoyed the meal. Hugs and nose kisses

  11. Barb says:

    I’m glad your barks didn’t scare them away Daisy, so they had a good feed of the seeds. How unusual to see turkeys though.

  12. Raven says:

    Turkey is tasty! I’m not sure you’d want to chase those big ones – they can be tough old birds!

  13. We have a family of turkeys we call the Johnson’s who drop by all the time. We love to chase them!

  14. Wow beautiful big turkeys!

  15. amkuska says:

    Wow they are quite pretty! I don’t normally care for the look of turkeys so that’s saying something!

  16. katiebblogs says:

    Wow what a surprise guest! We have seen one turkey cross our driveway but never more than that – how neat!

  17. Novroz says:

    Seeing the turkeys and thanksgiving comings soon (it is soon, right?) when I read title I thought the turkey is being turned into dinner ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Wow they are big birds meow
