Backyard Turkeypalooza

On July 3rd I was washing dishes, looked out the window and was stunned to see a herd of turkeys strolling through the yard.


*gasp*
Turquita has peeps! Awesome!











There's 18 chicks here.... probably a few more around.















Awwwww who's makin poopies in my yard, is it you?? Yes it is!


A brief video, sorry for the bad quality, I was shooting into the sun and trying to hide because they were watching me:

OMG, the cuteness factor is too much! You are so lucky to see the peeps. I've never seen any chicks.
LOL@ who's poopin in the yard!

Turkeys have really made a comeback in TN. I've even seen them in N'ville in my MIL's yard, although it's a big one with trees by a creek, but still!

It was so great, I've only seen turkey chicks two other times, and then just a handful, in the National Park - I was literally stunned to see this many!

Glad to hear they're on the increase :-)
