Pasture Check!

Hen Turkey Near The Sheep ......
The hen turkey beat a quick retreat as we approached the barnstone pile on our pasture check.  We've seen several individual hens out and about over the last weekend.  We think that they are off of their nests & looking for food.  Livestock pastures are excellent places to scratch around ...... dropped grain and/or grain in the droppings!  Easy pickings for a turkey.   Once we actually had a group of turkeys peck & scratch their way right past the resting sheep.
