Turkeys 1

    Well, I have decided to own turkeys for the first time ever! I actually got two from a very nice friend here on BYC and was going to raise them for "T" day dinner. Well, needless to say I fell in love with them and have ordered a turkey for dinner from the store!!! [​IMG]

    I have had "Freda" my almost four year old Turkey for about 4 months due to a neighbor moving and needing someone to take her and promise not to eat her...If anyone wants to enjoy raising a communitive animal take on a turkey., She enjoys being petted and loves her neck to be massaged..she lays a huge egg almost every day...when I turn the back doorknob she yells "tauk, tauk, tauk" until I "tauk, tauk, tauk" back at her...after I put out the laying mash she makes her thank you sounds..."plink, plink,plink..etc the whole time she is eating. Freda is not the smartest pet I have ever had...My chicken yard is U shaped with an open gate between the legs of the U. The coop where the other chickens roost and lay is at the top of one of the legs and all the umbrellas for shade and a tree is in the other leg of the U...when she needs to lay she pushes her chest against the end of the leg where the shade is until it is bowed in the shape of her chest...she pushes and yells "tauk, tauk, tauk" until I come out and push, touch prod her to the gate then she hurries to the coop to lay in the nestbox that is made for 5 pd chickens...Freda weighs 30 pds and the box is very tight...but she will not use the "doublewide" nestbox I made her...she has to lay where the "other chickens" lay. I totally enjoy being outside in the heat, rain, sun fiddling with my turkey and 7 hens and one rooster named "Herman". All pets
