    We were on the way to Myrtle Beach yesterday and just a few miles from our house, we saw something moving across the field. We slowed down and saw this:

    They were really moving! That made my day. I've never seen a wild turkey hen with so many poults around here.

    Awww, love it!!

    We have a family of wild turkeys that have totally taken up residence at our house for the last two months. There's two hens and one tom, plus 12 babies. They've become really friendly with us and roost in the trees to the left of our porch and free range with chickens all day. I have a ton of pictures of them at my computer at home, but unfortunately only one bad cell phone picture at work, but here is some of the gang. So sweet!
