    Today I heard some comotion at the chicken tractor. Sounded like an egg song but a little diffferent. I look out the window and my girls were having a country visitor.

    We have been seeing turkeys in the area but this was the first time I have seen them in the backyard. It sure gave the girls some excitement.

    Love it!

    We have a flock every spring that swing by in the morning with their chicks, hang out for a bit and then move on. At this time of year, we now have a lone female in the area that can be seen traveling from my in-law's bird feeder (next door) through our woods and on to better feeding grounds. It's funny that they only hang with my chickens when they have their chicks with them.

    I love it when the turkeys visit us. Scares my rooster into his run. He is afraid of them. [​IMG]
