PREGNANT TURKEY STORY

One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my sister's house for the traditional feast. Knowing how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to play a trick. She told my sister that she needed something from the store.

When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen, and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back in the oven.

When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird.

With a look of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, "Patricia, you've cooked a pregnant bird!" At the reality of this horrifying news, my sister started to cry.

It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!

Oh, sorry. That was a joke sent to me via email (or maybe it's true) but my sister's name is Linda and she knows turkeys lay eggs. I think.

I actually have a cousin who was a teacher for thirty years in Michigan who retired here to the south. He quickly tried to get into the southern lifestyle.

He built expensive pens and filled each one with chickens,ducks,geese,and turkeys.

I happened to go and visit family and he was there talking about it. I asked why such arrangements. One pen for each type of fowl. He was dead serious and said

"I don't want half duck half chickens or half turkeys and half ducks etc"



He was VERY serious. Retired teacher

Home-school your kids

I saw a video of several male mallards raping a female mallard, so they must get unusually horned up. That guy must have gone to college under Affirmative Action. :lol:
