they have been around since they were born/ very young, they separated from the large group at the bottom of the hill. Figured it would be safer up here plus a new food source. 3 hens and I think 11 youngsters

Neat to see, but wait until they get hungry & find grubs in your yard... It'll look like someone used a tiller on it.

We've got so many big cats and coyotes that our flock disappeared a couple of years ago. Good Luck, Rick

I seen a pretty good sized flock yesterday. Where I am in ohio it seems like we have a large population of turkey.

Down in the Fairmont area of wv I haven't seen a turkey yet.

the skunks beat them to it , now they just pass through.

they just need a little help, maybe i will be target practicing with the bow when they come through later in the season. that might be all the help they'll need, and maybe a little dressing room so they can gat nacked :rolling:  :rolling:

I had to swerve to miss three of the biggest hens I have ever seen the other day. It must have been a good year for turkeys.
