    Hahaha, Not only do we feed our own animals but now the wild turkeys come and get the droppings. lol. And it gets better!!! Usually after they are done doing this, I am putting my son on the bus and they decide to cross the road!!! So I have to be the official "turkey crossing guard". LOL
    Now thats FREELOADING!! I told them they better leave me some eggs!!! LOL

    I have a solo hen that I've seen fairly regularly since the beginning of the year. She comes up and enjoys the bounty under the bird feeder. I've often wondered why she doesn't have a flock, and I wonder, too, if I'll hear or see a tom come spring, if she chooses to stick around.
