Monday I was outside and my neighbor (who I've known since I was a kid and who has graciously put up with our chickens, duck, and a bad stint with sheep) said, "You're not raising turkeys now are you?" I thought it was a joke so I replied that I hadn't. Turns out that they had a hen in their backyard!?!? Not a huge deal for most people, but I'm in a pretty suburban area. Lots of houses, busy roads, a 5 lane freeway, etc. There are some regional park / open areas a couple miles away, but we've never seen turkeys in our backyards! How far do wild turkeys fly? This one would have had to either fly a few miles or do a lot of yard jumping to get from where it lives to our neighbor's yard. Any ideas why it was out and about?
