I am so new to the whole chicken scene.I don't even have my chicks yet but am wondering if I allow my chickens to free range when I am out with them do I need to be concerned at all about wild turkey? Will they peck at my birds? Do I have to be concerned with them transfering any illness to my birds? My DH says turkeys are not so smart so I thought they would be skittish but they sure seem a lot more curious than I thought they would be. BTW they are not very smart (or maybe they are).The school bus driver will sit and beep at them as they block the bus from moving. Then she usually has to get off the bus to shoo them out of the road.The kids think its hysterically funny. We frequently have turkey roaming around our yard despite our large (obviously NOT scary ) dog and I am just concerned.
