Everyone, You really have made the biggest difference in my life and I don't know any of you personally-thanks for all your kind words during my last loss. I was really touched. As some of you may /may not remember I lost 4 of my girls over a month ago to predators. We killed a fox, raccoon and a possum and then had peace and quiet. My full grown mature "wild" male turkey was killed. I woke up Saturday and called him, which he is either right near the girls coop all flared up or right near our door but he always gobbles to answer me but heard nothing even after several attempts. I thought he may be chasing the other wild female that has been coming around (even though his longtime girlfriend-our female turkey is there) so I went looking for him. I found on the backside of our hillside (where he roosts on the ground since the girls were attacked he moved there). There were feathers everywhere, drag mark on the hillside and feathers all over the bottom of the hill. No blood at all though and no sign of being dragged anywhere else? I don't even know if he was deep in the woods suffering and couldn't call to me. I'm just devasted! I've cried for days. No other signs of anything else around the coop at all? Just really strange no signs of him being taken away, no foot tracks and was a very large bird to swoop up. He was the sweetest ever, I just loved him. My heart can't take anymore of the killings. I am almost tempted to just give the rest of my nine girls away as my heart just can't take it anymore. It's like having your children taken (for me it is as they are my only babies). I'm just broken hearted. Sorry for the long post just very upset!
