    We saw these wondering around in our back yard yesterday, we didn't know what they were, we figure they are young turkeys, are we right and if so what kind? There is one more we haven't caught yet but keeping an eye out for it.. How old are they and what kind are they, We know nothing about turkeys, please help!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] We didn't expect to be raising turkeys, don't know how, what kind of food they eat and where we can get it, and do they need special anything???????????

    It's a bad picture of the birds. I can't tell what they are, turkeys? chickens? . I, myself, don't think they are wild. Maybe someone dropped them off.

    I'd like to see a picture of them from the front or of the side with the head up, but I don't think they are turkeys - guneas, maybe? Please, another picture.

    Oh, the 2nd page of my post has better pics so you can see what we were trying to figure out.... the color...

    Looks to me like you have a variety like I do. [​IMG]
