During the spring, I bought two turkeys and a tom from them, plus geese and ducks. Shortly after, the tom died. I did not ask for a replacement, but today, this morning, I got a phone call asking if I was home and if they could drop by with a surprise. About a half hour later, the man and his son, who lives in Grand Prairie, I believe, came by. They were driving the welding truck and we looked in the back. There was a crate there and I could barely make out the head of a large bird. He asked his son to bring down a tom turkey and replaced the one that had died in the spring. Now that is being neighbourly beyone the call of duty.
We had a quick look around the farm and he mentioned his Silky rooster died. I happened to have two Silky roosters and offered him one, no charge of course. That is how we do it. It is nice to have some friends out here and I am grateful for these lovely folks. I am comforted knowing they enjoy my company too and we have had many long conversations standing in their barnyard or mine.
But, I have never seen a red neck turkey crate until today! Now, I have seen it all!
