The turkeys have been running around the back yard when I usually get to the quilting machine just about everyday. Well, as I was working along last week, I turned around and there they were! Like within 30 feet of the house!
I thought seeing the turkeys each day was all cool and fun, until they got this close and drove the dogs INSANE!!! They wouldn't stop barking for hours it seemed, it got old pretty quick at that point.
They sleep in the trees to protect themselves from predators, but if you've ever seen a turkey try to "fly" (and I use that word very loosely) it's a hysterical sight. They are very clumsy when it comes to air travel.
