Welcome to Animal Tales, the blog linky that brings together all sorts of animal blog posts from all over the world. It runs from Tuesday morning thought to Friday night and showcases a wide range of animal related posts.
I am currently nursing an injured turkey. Regular blog readers may well know that turkeys are not the brightest of animals and will do their best to kill themselves given half a chance. Fast forward to this injured turkey who thought it would be a good idea to roost VERY high in her shed and then jump/flutter/somersault down in the morning. She landed very awkwardly and injured herself to the point she cannot walk properly. That said, today she is managing to stand without falling over so her leg isn't broken, which was my first thought. It may be that she has broken a wing which has unbalanced her or pulled something which hurts when she walks. Time will tell if she recovers or not so she is kept back in her overnight pen whilst her friends are out in the. Interestingly, they are not happy knowing she is left behind and there is much noise from their field. Oh and we have rigged up some turkey anti climbing/flying fencing so none of them now can fly up onto stupid high perches. Sometimes I really do despair with turkeys!
Thank you to everyone who joined in last week. The post from Ersatz Expat in Malaysia about the plight of puppies on the streets of Ipoh had me breathing a sigh of relief in it's upbeat story so do go and have a read if you missed it last week.
So over to you now. Feel free to come and add your animal related posts to the linky below. The posts can be old or new and as varied as the animals who we share our world with. If you tweet with the hashtag #AnimalTales I'll retweet you. Just give me a nudge if I appear to have forgotten you.
Full details of the linky can be found here but can I remind people of a couple of the "rules":
- Please can you comment on at least 2 other blogs linked up - that is, after all the whole purpose of joining a linky to find and comment on more blogs and hopefully drive traffic back to your blog.
- Please can you include my badge (preferably) or a link back to this blog.
- Pinterest - not a rule but for even greater exposure of your blog post please do join the Animal Tales Pinterest board and pin a picture from your linked posts.
- Can I remind people not to add sponsored posts or paid-for reviews. Eco-Gites of Lenault has no advertising on it and I am not comfortable promoting products or companies I know nothing about.
