    On normal days I let them out when I get home from work and they free range just fine. Today they tromped into the garden right off trying to rip out the broccoli plants, after I chased them out of there it was straight off to beating up the chickens. There was no foraging going on just shenanigans! [​IMG]

    Anyone else experience this?

    Haha, I definitely have. They have several acres to roam, and where do they go? My planters and jump into them and smoosh my plants with their fat butts! Or the asparagus bed. They dust bathe inbetween the plants, thank goodness they haven't ripped any up, but I am going to fence it off anyway so it is OFF LIMITS for turkeys.

    Mine were sitting on top of the neighbors house when I came home from work. My wife was trying to round them up. Neighbor didn't mind they were feeding them treats.
