    This is a video on Youtube that my daughter made of Albert our turkey that started swimming on Father's day. We have ducks and geese so I guess he thought he was just supposed to! Enjoy!

    A few times a day, sometimes without the ducks and geese. The funniest was one time he stopped swimming and was floating then gradually floated to the shore and stood up. His legs were so long he stood well above the water. He is only 4 months old here in the video.

    It thinks it's a duck or something. The ducks must have encouraged himt to do it. [​IMG]

    Great video [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] It only proves that turkeys are very funny birds [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Luckily my turkeys don't have a laptop in their house. If they had they would probably force me to start digging a pond.... [​IMG]
