The mama turkey was teaching the babies what was what this morning. One of them, a little month-old shrimp, was defying her, leaping in the air like he was on a spring. Mama took after him. Pecked him hard, and drove the entire dozen poults back into their house. Then she stood guard, daring any of them to try and get past her out the door. And no one did. If this was on a human scale, it’d be a five-year old brat versus a winged moose. The brat had no hope from the beginning, but it was sure funny to watch him get his comeuppance.
