    Ive had my two turkeys a few days now maybe 4. They are so much more friendly than my chickens. They wont let me get as close but follow me around. If im sitting down they will get right up with me. I cant believe how vocal they are. As soon as I get the turkey house done I might see if I can get a couple more.

    I havent seen it but then again I havent seen anything lol. No TV. Ive actually got a sunflower seed between my lips. The turkeys are so much more gental even when eating out of my hand than the chickens.

    They look more like Mottled Black than Black Spanish to me...

    Now you know why I try to warn folks that turkeys are addictive. I love the pic, talk about a peck on the lips! [​IMG]
