Boys will be boys

A romantic comedy is playing itself out every day at Goat Rope Farm. We have two mature...well, fully grown anyway...male turkeys known as Fauntleroy and Turk Lurk Jr.  There are slightly more females. One might think this would be a cause of joy for the boys, but no.

Instead, each one is consumed with the thought that the other one might have access to a female. That thought gives them no peace of mind. For that reason, they are constantly together and never let the other out of sight. They eat together. They sleep together. They display for each other. One might even suspect that they are more interested in each other than in the females, not that there's anything wrong with that. 

One time, the Spousal Unit found them chasing each other around a grill and pecking at their own reflections in it.

I guess it's just an extreme case of male bonding.
