Unfortunately for Ned, this guy is also in love with Shirley and won't let Ned near her anymore:
Poor Lucy the Gander lost his lady this winter after she was attacked by The Turkey (who will be making his way to a dinner table in the near future). As spring is fast approaching, Lucy has some misplaced sexual frustrations. Obviously.
See him making sure Ned keeps his distance? Poor Ned. The good thing is that I have these in the brooder right now for Lucy:
Two beautiful, swan-necked white Chinese females (right now they're just cute and fuzzy). He can start his own harem as soon as they grow some feathers and are big enough to be put outside without freezing.
So that was the Valentine's day love story on my place since I was left home alone and didn't even get a card. I bought myself a box of truffles. They were good.
