I usually let the turkeys and chickens out of the run to free range about 6 and I head back to bed for another hour. Well, at 7 there is one of those strange turkey noises that let you know something is wrong. DH goes out and calls back that one of the turkeys is on top of the hoop house (veggie garden). The hoop house is right next to the property line, as are the garage and the chicken house. He goes to coax down our little friend, when he hears one of the females calling from the other side of the 7' wire deer fence. Yup, she's in the neighbor's yard. He went over to their front yard and coaxed her through a hole in the fence, so disaster (and dog!) averted. They have showed no interest in leaving our property, but it is easy to jump off a building and end up on the wrong side of a fence. I'm not so sure they would realize they CAN jump over the fence back to our yard. We're in the country and have wire fencing everywhere, and I'm not sure they even see it. They are 2-1/2 month old BRs and are just starting to look up at the world above us. For the next few weeks I can see that maybe I need to get up and stay up once they are let out because they stick real close to us when we are moving around the house or yard. Do turkeys figure out fencing?
