Turkey Raptors on the house roof at dusk, (doing Turkey Raptor Stuff and being noisy)
The weathervane with the blue glass ball is on top of the coop roof.
Were they supposed to be out?
That looks near dark. Where did they sleep?
Right now they are perching on the six foot fence because the weather has been so warm this past week. They usually perch in the coop.
I had to go back and make sure I didn't have the Peas confused with the turkeys. When will the turkeys be confined to an area to prevent them from leaving home?
They are supposed to be confined now but they use the house roof as an escape route. I have more netting and will probably have to put it up in the Spring.
Love the picture and your weather vane.
My turkeys do the same thing. Their crazy, but they keep me laughing.
HC, I've forgotten, what kind of turkeys do you have?
Midget Whites and Chocolates
JP has Eastern Wilds. He'll be around later to explain why he has them. I still don't understand it but then I have Guineas.
I used to have them, so I hatched some this year again. They are endlessly entertaining. Benjamin Franklin proposed it as the national bird. They also considered a Gamecock but considered it too English. They eventually settled on the Bald Eagle.
When I went to school at U. Penn, there was/is a statue of Franklin on a bench with his glasses slid down his nose and an Eastern Wild Turkey beside him.
Have you finished the netting so they don't go off and join their wild brethren?
No, they use the roof to go check those cat dishes multiple times a day. They are going to defeat the netting, they already do to get in the trees. I'm going to have to think this one through some more.
That sounds like it could get complicated trying to figure out how to keep them in.
It's a lot of open area and I don't clip wings.
I have no ideas for you. It's bad enough dealing with the Guineas.
You and I will both manage!
We have Eastern Wilds that come into our woods. Some mated with the chocolates years ago which resulted in some interesting babies. The midget whites seem to be protective of "their" land. They own everything, silly birds.
Silly birds indeed!
