    Our turkey, who is allowed to free range the back yard along with our chickens, geese, and duck, has discovered that if she comes up to the back door she can see inside. Well our inside cats think it's fun to sit at the door and paw at her while she pecks away at them. [​IMG] It's rather amusing to watch.

    However, yesterday, out of the blue, we opened the door to go outside and instead of walking off like she usually does, turkey marched right inside the house, through the utility room, and right into the kitchen. She then plopped down on the rug and talked to us just like she had been doing it everyday for her whole life. We just love this turkey!!!

    Turkeys are special!

    I like my chickens, but love the antics of the turkeys! My poults are still cooped at night in our country kitchen. At dusk they gather on the porch waiting for the door to open. Then troupe to their coop for the night.

    When I'm outside doing chores I have a troupe following me! [​IMG]

    I know someone whose turkey hen steals clean laundry out of the laundry basket when she is hanging it. LOL

    Sorry guys. She hasn't come inside again since I posted and I didn't take pics that day. I keep waiting for her to come in again so I can snap a few and post them. Since my husband decided that we weren't going to eat her this year and instead are going to find her a mate, hopefully I'll have more time to catch a few pics and get them posted. She really does have such a nice personality.
