    Well, the newest thing my turkey's have done is decide that perching on my forearm is a treat. It started when I went inside to get a glass of water, and they flew up to the porch landing to watch me inside the kitchen. When I came out and went to pet Pumpkin, she hopped onto my arm. Right now it isn't bad, but I can only imagine when she is full grown, what a load!!! Once Pilgrim saw her do it, he decided to try it. When a turkey is flying at you, instinctively you put your arm up or get out of the way! It was pretty obvious what he wanted to I stuck my arm out and he hopped on! Although this is cute, I don't think I am going to encourage it.

    What an arm workout! You'll get real strong!
    Mine always want to sit on my shoulders, I don't allow it anymore now that they are getting bigger!
