No joke. Over 15 but maybe less than 20. They were circling maybe MAYBE 100 feet above us and most landed in the trees in the yard and just hung out there. It was around 6pm and they didn't seem to be roosting yet but boy were they hovering over my girls just watching us...The chickies were freaking out, hiding under the coop we had to entice them out with worms and grab them one at a time to throw them in their coop for the night. I know that turkey vultures are carrion eaters, however we have NEVER had more than one buzz over the yard and they were hovering very close to the ground right over the coop and run. So tell me I have nothing to worry about? They wouldn't really go after a chicken, my girls are only about 9 weeks old so they aren't full grown yet which is really the only reason I'm concerned. I haven't got the top of the run on yet and can't really get to until tomorrow night or even the next day...I wish I had taken a picture of them all in the tree it was crazy.
