Dawn, I heard the "fly-down cackle" and saw this hen flying from the roost
Two types of Galliforme Dinosaurs squaring off. Not sure what it is, but the rooster seems to get the turkey hens angry and they chase him.
This was Butterball as a poult. Sleeping soundly! She was the sole egg survivor of a raccoon raided nest and the mother-(a bourbon red turkey) did not return to the nest.
We hatched and raised her. She is almost 14? years old now.
With the baby Butterball, we first learned of the baby turkeys need and love to nuzzle!

Wow the near miss. We found Lilac trapped in the pool on the verge of drowning. We rescued her just in time. Still she was suffering from hypothermia and took three+ hours of TLC to recover.

We will never forget Bobbles
Honeybird number one. We were given a second "Honeybird"
Funny how the name was applied to two very affectionate turkeys!

An "Americana Chicken" laid her egg in the turkey nest, and surprise! Look at those cheeks!
