It seems appropriate that I should do this post now. All summer and fall we have had a family group of turkeys visit our property.
I've watched old lame Momma hen go from 10 little ones to just 3 that have made it to adulthood. While my parents were here a fifth joined the group. I had my suspicion's but this week they were confirmed.
The new addition is indeed a Tom, a young one (called a Jake) who likely struck out on his own. Just look at that amazing blue head!
And yes, we joked about a traditional Thanksgiving feast, but these birds are safe, from us at least!
Parting shot: Only sleepy heads in THE most coveted spot in the house.
