    I have asked this ques a million times i just like the different info be for i try anything...Has anyone every tried to tame a wild turkey. I purchased her from another guy about a yr ago she has been pend since with my bourbon red tom and trusts me enough to eat from my hand and pet her... if I let her free range now with my Tom and the chickens will she head for the woods or stick around because she knows its safe and its home... I would like go breed her to my Tom in the spring
