I mentioned our Turkeys penchant for NPR and coffee in Turkeys, NPR, and Morning Coffee.
Well, they’re at it again.
Many of the same turkeys. Some new ones. This was videoed in Feb of this year. Currently we’ve had a lone Tom visit. The hens have, we’re hoping, been staying on their eggs. We further hope most if not all the eggs have hatched and we’ll soon see turklets.
You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a bunch of hens corralling an even larger bunch of turklets.
Turklets are lighter and get airborne more easily.
Unfortunately, they haven’t quite mastered powered flight.
They’ll travel 5-10 feet then you’ll hear an awkward BWAACK! followed by a crashing turklet. Often into a hen or another turklet.
They get up, unhurt.
But you should see the look on their face.
Meanwhile, Turkeys, NPR, and Friday morning coffee.
