    One of my roos had a few of the hens in the woods today and as usual the neighborhood turkeys came walking by. The roo kept getting in between the hens and turkeys and then finally just ran them off. The picture quality is not spectacular.

    Quote:The turkeys made the mistake of coming too close today, he ran right at them and started kicking and flapping. I wish I had a video of it.
