We had a pet turkey that got froze to the iron porch rail. I was about 10 years old then. Dad went out with hot water to unfreeze it's feet. Then brought it inside. It promptly crapped all over the floor. Mom was furious. It wasn't but a few days after that,(Thanksgiving week) the turkey flew away, never to be seen again.

Frozen Peacock sits on the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Frozen Peacock, laugh, Frozen Peacock,
Gay your life must be!

Frozen Peacock sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the snowballs he can see
Stop, Frozen Peacock, Stop, Frozen Peacock
Leave some there for me.

Frozen Peacock sits in the old gum tree,
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop, Frozen Peacock, Stop, Frozen Peacock,
That's no monkey, that's me.

It's a pretty good sign it's cold out when birds start freezing to trees.

A pet turkey? Did you by chance, grow up in Kentucky?

Aaaw, poor thing. I hope it didn't suffer before it passed on. Peacocks are such beautiful birds. The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear about anything being frozen and stuck to something is the little boy in "A Christmas Story." Strange that some people are still crazy enough to stick there tongue onto something frozen, but everyone's idea of thrill is different.

Don't the zoo keepers, know how to take care of the animals...when the weather is this cold...doesn't say much for the zoo.
