"You 'BECOME' the horse said to the rabbit. 'It doesn't happen all at once. It takes a very long time. Generally by the time you are REAL most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But those things don't matter, because you are real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.' " >>> The Velvateen Rabbit

Don't mess with our Turkey!
This is a few pictures of a wild turkey hen that has sort of adopted us. She has come about twice a day for the last week or so. Did I mention that we live in town? But there is an acre of wooded land next to us. We have seen fox, deer, and assorted rodents. There was a story in the local paper about a big tom turkey in a town about 30 miles from us that had become a community pet till this last week when some guys caught it and choked it. One lady confronted them and they said they were "putting it down" as it had been hit on the road. Pretty doubtful. I hope they choked on it when they cooked it! Pretty sad when you catch a turkey bare handed and not think it might be a pet to someone.
Who know how long this one will hang around, but she has it pretty good as our yard is protected and quiet, plus there is always grain put out for whoever wants it.
