Blue ribbon wild turkey hen

This hen is an "eastern wild turkey" breed, but a bird that I purchased as a poult and raised. So calling her a "wild turkey" doesn't mean that I've captured a wild bird, it's the breed. That said...

She showed up on the driveway this morning with her brood of 11 poults. She's in this picture at the far right. Can you spot them? Click on the picture for a bigger version.

That is so cool! You should have seen the poults we have from you. They try and sleep up in the apple trees at night. I am afraid of the raccoons later in the season, so I don't let them actually sleep there. But, it is cool to see them want to naturalize themselves so easily.
