This isn't a very good thread but I am gonna throw these two in one thread. I recently saw some wild turkeys very close up where I work. I have seen these birds several times and it is really amazing to see them thrive right here in the city. I saw a small flock trying to scratch up some food in a field near by my place of work. I love watching them, even through they looked mighty ragged. Do toms stay with the flock during the winter? I am asking cause I didn't see a tom, but I am not that experienced. I am adding this 2nd topic cause Freebie asked me and I don't know why she didn't post it herself but here it goes to as close as I can remember. Seems like a week or two ago her brothers were driving down her long drive to her house and they saw what looked like a chicken head sticking out. Seems like one of her barred rock hens got stuck in the snow. Well they thought the bird would be dead but she wasn't and they brought her in the house to thaw her out. She warmed up and was good as new. Why this hen strayed that far from the flock(she freeranges) I don't know. It is truly amazing that she didn't get killed by a predator and she recovered. Chickens are truly amazing at their recovery skills. Or maybe it is just Denise's birds are very hardy ha ha. Sorry about the lousy threads but this chicken stuck in the snow was really interesting.
