Show & Tell

So we take Simmey to a second generation daycare called Tumbles down the road in an old stone building. The folks there are common sense, reasonable people. Friday was "bring your pet day", so we took a duck, who was so scared he started hyperventalting. Interesting, the kids toned down their excitement when they realized the duck was stressing out, and sat back down on thier own, much to the ducks relief.

We brought a 2 month old pullet hen as well, who in typical chicken fashion didn't stress. The kids got to pet the hen, a first almost all of them. We also had an old school turkey poult as well.

Poulty facts from the kids:

  1. Turkeys eat cats.
  2. All these birds came from zoo.
  3. Ducks get scared when they miss thier friends.

  1. OHHH! "Ducks get scared when they miss their friends" That is so sweet! And I love that they all chilled out on their own, that's kind of amazing.
