Four stupid turkeys peering down at me from the rafters. Oh... my... gosh! Seriously... mini heart attack.These birds are psycho. If you've seen the movie The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock, you might have an idea of what I mean. These turkeys are crazy! We've never had turkeys like this. Usually the type we get are so sweet they just follow you around the yard. Not these stupid things. They fly all over the place like we're going to kill them. I hate walking into the coop when they are in there. It's a sea of feathers when we do cause they freak out and fly around crazy in that small coop. I usually refuse to go in there. I make Jared do all the watering, but I had no choice tonight. (I think he did this on purpose to teach me a lesson. Didn't work.)
I wish the camera could have gotten all four turkeys so you could see just how scary it was. But my small light would only shine on two. These birds are pretty big. I'm guessing at least 25 lbs. on the hens, and the tom around 30. That's a lot of crazy bird to be flying around. Not sure why the stupid things are perched up there. Jared built them somewhere to bed down, lay eggs, etc. But nope, these birds are picky birds and would rather be in the rafters so they can scare the livin' day lights outa me!
Poor Jeffery. He's still so scared! Found him outside in the turkey run with is head hiding down in the dirt. Hopefully one day he will learn to like other turkeys. Guess that's what happens when he only sees humans for 2 months. Still can't believe he's the only turkey that hatched.
