A fine sunny summer day at the home of Parker the DT. Two young hens wander in from the neighbors yard. Parker’s Mom sees them while getting his food ready & gets them some seed.
All seems fine, Parker is eating, hens are pecking seed.
Suddenly (as sudden as a tortoise gets), Parker looks up, with greens hanging from his beak, he looks straight at hens, and thinks, Oh, No, not in my territory. He leaves his lunch and starts plodding, methodically towards those pesky hens. When he gets close enough, they take notice, start to back away, he keeps on trucking. ‘Move along’! They take a turn South, Parker changes directions right after them. Speed is not his strong suit, so the hens got away, then tried to flank him around the grill.
Parker stood his ground, those hens went back to the neighbors. He is a dinosaur, after all. ????????
