Okay. So I went to the tourist trap again the morning and got three new options for the house-hunter--all slightly different sizes.

OH yesssss...our Tom (his name is Mr. Turkey - what else?) was hatched
via incubator and has been handled his whole life. He follows me
everywhere, gobbles on call - every single time, thinks he owns the
place, and sits on the back porch and stares at me while I'm cooking
dinner, hoping that I will come out and feed him something good. When we
were out shearing our llamas last Saturday, he had to be right in the
middle of ALL OF IT. I don't think he would get in the car but he lets
me hold him and carry him around. He's HEAVY though. He is black and
white - a "Royal Palm" turkey. Beautiful. I'll try to send some pics
ya'lls way.

 Jesse--tell me about your baby turkeys. I raised several crops in the
mid-80s and really got to be quite fond of them. I had a big, old, very
tame male--named Tom [what else]--that I used to take to kindergarten
classes at the local schools so the tots could get up close and touch
him. He would gobble on command, which delighted the kids, of course,
and occasionally terrified the teachers. Tom, who weighed almost 30
pounds, loved to ride in my truck. It was never a problem to get him
into the passenger's seat. I just had to open the door and he would
half-fly, half-scramble into the seat. The best part was driving down
the freeway with Tom as copilot. Talk about double takes!

I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT MY BABY TURKEYS!!!! WOOOOOO. I'm going to go home
and play with them tonight! They are so stinking cute I can hardly
stand
it. I need to go and see if Lady Chatsworth is sitting on eggs yet. She
has not been coming up to the barn much.

That's right! I forgot about that. I had several shells in my
container
and it seemed like they played "musical shells" a lot. They would
try on
shells until they found just the right one. And when it left it's old shell, one of the other ones would go try his shell on for size. Too
funny.

Well, if it hasn't moved by morning, I'll go buy it a couple of
additional options. Thanks for the advice.

We used to keep a variety of empty whelk shells available for them
(had them in a touch tank at the Museum in Charleston) and they
would
run around checking each on out before they chose. You might need a
couple more shells Jim. Those little guys can be picky sometimes!

Ms Fatma is baby-sitting a hermit crab this summer. A week or so
ago
we noticed that it seemed a bit large for its shell, so we
purchased
a larger one at a local souvenir shop. For the first few days, it
dragged the new shell all around its tank--into its water bowl,
into
its food bowl--like it was introducing a new chum to the
neighborhood. Well, last night, it parked next to the new shell,
opening to opening. We think, maybe, it's going to move into the
larger shell today or tonight.
