For the past couple of years, the Turkey Ladies have graced my yard with their presence. There are five of them, four plain girls and one with a beard (which statistically is correct, about 20 percent of hens have a small beard.) Today I was going about my business, looked out the window and thought to myself "How nice, there are the Turkey Ladies, way out in the very back yard."
Then, I did a double take, because there weren't five Ladies, there were more. You have to look closely at this picture, but, there are eight, and only one has a little beard.
Later on in the day, some of them were up at the feeders, this time with a Tom. But, again, is it my Mr. Tom, or a new guy, with his own harem.
