Feed store said Wild Turkeys....
Mr T was mostly dark brown and black with Green and Gold irridescent highlights They were good fliers to they roosted on a pipe that is fastened over my back door.... So a good twelve feet up.
this is the closest picture of one I can find.
He was a handsome dude. And Brave and a fierce protector. Found him flogging something in the coop one cold morning.... I pulled him off and there was a Raven on its back shoved into a corner.
LOL... Raven was playin dead... smart bird. But he was cold so I picked him up and checked out his wings and body for damage... Caught him peeking at me soon as he saw me seing him he shut his eyes tight. I stuck him under my coat and went and sat with him on the porch to warm him up. soon as I felt him move I went out to the driveway.
Last I saw of him he was WALKING down the road and muimbling....
