At first I always assumed farm birds had poor eyesight at night but the turkey I have seems to be proving me otherwise. I bring her into the garage at night to sleep in a dog kennel (which she hates) and I leave her for a few minutes so she can eat and drink before going to sleep, then when I come back out to close her cage and turn the light out she's gone. So I turn the bright lights on outside to search for her and I find her across the yard sleeping on top of the hay shed. I don't understand how she found her way there so easily if turkeys really do have terrible night vision like I've been reading. It's nearly pitch black out besides a couple lights on the other side of the road through some trees yet she manages to successfully get over and around two fences and jump on top of the shed. Then once I get her down and she starts following me back to the house, once she realizes it's because I'm going to put her back in the garage she veers off back into the dark as if it's a natural direction and the most comfortable thing to do. She's starting to make herself seem like a creature of night and shadows.
