I have a Blue Slate (?) turkey hen who hangs out free range with my chicken hens and roosters (mostly Blue Marans). If my wife or I are out in the yard she will often find us, come within a few or couple of feet of us and just sit down as if she's going to lay. When she's like this she will allow you to stroke her feathers. This seems strange to me. Any ideas?
