We moved the last of the turkeys outside from the brooder and the outside birds into different living conditions on Saturday 8/22/09. We have some fun pictures of the little turkeys in the crates sticking their heads through the cracks and of me herding the older birds toward their outside living area with the aid and some times hampering of the old tom. I have decided to leave the old tom with the turkeys. He was going outside during the day and not coming back in at night anyway. I would find him sitting next to the birds pen and have to struggle to get him to come into the barn with his two hens. I witnessed the little birds rush to him when a large bird flies overhead. It is just great that he has grafted on to them and want to protect them.
