We have a turkey hen that is about 10 years old. Quite recently she started displaying some unusual behaviour--she follows us (me and husband) around the barnyard and if we sit down or stop for a minute, she lays down right next to us and will let us pet her and she NEVER used to let us touch her at all. She was never really afraid of us or anything, like, she would get close enough where we could grab her if we needed to move her from one area or another, but never like this. If we move to a part of the barnyard she can't get to she becomes quite agitated, calling for us bu chirping etc. We do have lots of chickens that free-range with her including a couple roosters. We do not have any other turkeys. we got her from a neighbour last year and at that time she was laying eggs, but she stopped laying last fall. I figured she was too old. We though maybe she was not getting enough nutrition from the laying pellets and scratch, so we also put out some old chick grower we had just for a variety. She seems to be eating fine and her feathers look good. Is there any reason for this sudden affectionate behaviour?
