Tessa The Bourbon Red Cougar

Tessa when she was being normal and having breakfast with the other turkey
Tessa came to us from Boone, NC. You can read her story here about bringing her to be a mate for Fred but she feel in love with a Rooster named Elvis. This has been a on going love since 2009 until now. Tessa has turned cougar and fallen for a cabana boy, young rooster that is still wet behind his cone. EJ is Elvis son and no matter that we clip his wings, put him in a closed in pen he finds ways to escape and go back to Tessa. Fred has had enough. He decided to make his way over and join Elvis in his pen. The two of them seemed to be sharing Tessa breaking heart stories as they cry over their beer water bowl. I have taken Fred back to his pen the past 3 mornings and he has made his way back to Elvis. I have decided to let him stay for now and hope Tessa grows tired of having a young rooster wooing her. Hopefully spring will find her ready for Fred to move back in and make some babies. Around here you never know what the animals are going to do next. Makes each day something to look forward to!

Omigosh, the drama!!!!! hehe You should call Hollywood and tell them to come make a reality show about your animals! lol You have to feel sorry for Fred, though, and I too hope that Tessa eventually realizes that he's her one true love. Love ya sis. xoxo

Maybe Fred and Elvis are sharing more than stories. Exactly how friendly are they?? :)
