saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?

below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on
The rabbit and ate it.

A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to
the top of that tree, " sighed the turkey, " but I haven' t got the
energy." Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied
the bull. " They're packed with nutrients. "The turkey pecked at a lump
of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the
lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he
reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was
proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a
farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold; the bird
froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying
there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird
lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.
The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy,
and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and
came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird
under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.
