Great photos of your birds Feisty and Chaos! And I have to agree. I NEED some Sweetgrass turkeys. They are so pretty.
Feisty- Dinner started doing the same thing to my DH, and like Ralph said, have him establish his Top Tom dominance. He will stop.
Memphis- Banshee totally thinks he owns me. If I pet the dog, he comes a running and gets in the middle of it. What really confuses him though, is how the dog gets to go inside and he doesn't. I can't even count the number of times he has tried to get in. Dinner tried a lot too. He used to sleep by the door.
Tomahawk and Banshee have discovered one of the trees out back. I have no idea how it took them so long, but they spend a good part of the day purring up in the tree now.
I am going to put a decoy owl in their normal roosting spot (it is too high up for me to be able to get them down, and now too cold at night to spray them with the hose). See if I can't get them to move to a new location... like their coop. Or the tree. Or anywhere else, really.
My DH made it clear that once the deck is stained (it will be this week) if there is a bird on the deck, they are getting hit with the airsoft gun. He swears it won't hurt them, but I don't care. I think it is mean. So, I must tell my babies they can't sleep as close to the house as they possibly can anymore. I am sure they will be heartbroken and there will be a lot of crying.
Mostly by me.
If I wasn't grossed out at the prospect of all the poop everywhere, they would very likely be indoor/outdoor turkeys. Oh, and if my DH wouldn't divorce me over it. I guess that plays a small factor too. Very minimal.
