My Rio Grande Wild Turkey Tom has found a new way to scare the chickens. When he does this all the hens run hide out in the hen house where the nest boxes are. I thought all of my hens had vanished when I went to gather eggs this evening. All I saw was Tom and the two turkey hens. When I opened the door to the hen house I was surprised to find at least 30 of my hens hiding out. They weren't impressed with the turkey tom strutting around with his pretty feathers all fluffed out. I am not sure the turkey hens were all that impressed either as they were having a snack from the hanging feeder. Looks like Tom has been in the mud too by the looks of his feet.
I work part time as well as raise and show dairy goats and make and sell goat milk soaps and lotions. My life is BUSY!!
