I have a small flock of chickens (11). All are females. I let them free range all day in my backyard. They are still pretty young, abound 2 months now. Well, I was watching them from my window this morning and I saw 1 wild turkey hanging around them. I have never had a turkey in my yard before, I have seen them a few blocks away but they have always been with other turkeys. Will this turkey hurt them? Why has it started hanging around? I have always thought wild turkeys were dangerous and I dont want it hurting my ladies. Any info wold be great !!
