I've seen white turkeys but never brown. Is it really a turkey or does it just think it is?

That is funny! Those must be wild turkeys, but wonder where those light colored turkeys came from. My husband will enjoy seeing these pictures.

Gobble, gobble! Run for your lives, turkeys! :-)

I think my husband said the brown wild turkeys are a product of cross breeding between the white wild turkeys and the black ones ...
We could be wrong though.

I think the light one happened when a farm's tame turkeys co-mingled with a wild one. I wondered where all your turkeys were. Seems they have multiplied or they don't have a turkey shoot season around there. The wild ones are very smart, but yours seem so tame it would be easy for some to shoot. Are they eating acorns?

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Donna, I have heard that explanation also.J They do have turkey shooting season around here, but there are hundreds of acres for them to take cover.
not sure about eating acorns, but they will eat from the bird feeders.

I remember from former winters you had wild turkeys but it looks if their are more and more. They look so different from the fat grown turkeys we have here for Christmas.

Well there sure were lot's of acorns this year for the Turkeys.
I like the brown one ,not seen one before.

Jo, That's a lot of wild turkeys. :):) Are they noisy? I have seen more in the fields around my daughter's home than here. Spotting a wild turkey was unheard of in my youth. Blessings,,xoxox, Susie

That is really a large group of turkeys. I know they flock together but maybe they are not called a flock. I guess bird seed and bugs are being devoured.
