I have suddenly found myself a turkey owner...husband came home today to find this guy wandering around with the chickens. At first we assumed he (calling it a he) was a wild turkey but he is very colorful, and as you can see he let me pick him up! SO now he's in the coop pecking around with the girls. My chickens are visible from the road and I wonder if someone dumped him out, or he could have even wandered from a neighboring farm...if he's not wild. Like I said, can't imagine a wild turkey would allow me to hold it! He has a lot of cream to white markings, he's much lighter colored than any wild turkey I've ever seen. So what do you guys think? Any ideas on what kind of turkey, age, maybe a sex? How the heck do you take care of a turkey!? Any info is appreciated! Yes, I am in the coop in my work dress clothes in high heels wrangling a turkey! LOL country girls!
