Ok so turkey owning is new to me. I got them in April when they were mostly feathered. So they are now outside and getting bigger. I really wanted a slate turkey and ended up with two white turkeys. Any how this morning I let them out of their outside cage for the first time to see what they would do. Their about the same body size as a guinea hen. Oh my gosh, I nearly peed my pants laughing. They wandered over to my horse corral and were happily making little turkey noises when one of them started strutting. I am now positive that I have a male and a female. So I knew my husband would be getting up soon and feared that he would let the dogs out. I have one that is a fence climber who has shown way to much interest in the turkeys while they are in their cage and I figured she would kill them if she go them. So I started walking back towards their cage and said, Here Chick Chick and oh my word, it was hysterical. They were trying to fly towards me and running with their little bodies going from side to side. They went right in their pen for their food. I LOVE them! I was going to let them free range during the day when I'm not home but I don't know if I can bring myself to do it now. I will be devestated if anything happens to them. Not to mention that I am petrified that they are going to grow to big since I assume they are meat birds. I have to "cull" my little chicken as it is not doing well at all. I cried. I haven't done it yet and I am most likely going to bring it to a vet because I just can't bring myself to kill it.
