Very sad day for me. Just started letting my wild turkey free-range about 2 weeks ago from the 30x15 pen into the fenced back yard. The back yard/garden is dog-proof, however today, my turkey hopped over the fence about an hour before sunset. It was very windy today and I'm kicking myself for not putting her in the pen earlier. We have 4 dogs 3 are chicken friendly but the 4th one I don't like got her. I got so attached to her. She was hatched by a chicken hen as the nest was destroyed by equipment here on the ranch. It was a miracle she even hatched. I know people say don't run a turkey with chicken but I've done and know people who have no problems. Cayenne pepper is a blackhead preventative. Anyway, I am determined to get one or two more. My question is what kind should I get, and will they be as flighty as a true wild turkey? I don't want a white domestic turkey....want a pet that will live longer than a year or two. I would appreciate your thoughts. Also what I can do to prevent it. Thanks!!!
