A Turkeys Nature

2012 073This season, I built what I thought was a really deluxe turkey house;  place for the birds to relax that’s shady, dry, with a roost so they can sleep out of the reach of predators.

The next night this turkey felt a little lonely, so he invited a friend to enjoy this new, higher perch.  Then this turkey’s friend invited his friend, and then his friend invited a friend. In ever-growing numbers, in a short time they wrecked their warm, dry, shady house.  Farm pics 036Farm pics 042

Some turkeys, however, couldn’t come to terms with the destruction.

I should have realized in hindsight that given a turkey’s nature, they would disregard a charitable act and do as they wish. Who am I to stop them?
