Ever since Luke told you about the wild turkeys hanging out in our yard with our guinea hens, I’ve been trying to get a photo of them all together! If the guineas see the turkeys down by our garden, they’ll often go down to join them. Sometimes when I’m looking for the guinea boys, I’ll look down there, see the turkeys, and then have to look a little harder to see the much shorter guineas down there in the weeds and brush too. It’s been difficult to get good photos because the turkeys are timid of me, so if I head towards them with the camera, they’ll run away. That’s what happened in the series of photos below, however, I think I got a couple of decent shots before they moved off. I wanted to illustrate the size difference in the birds and the first photo does show that pretty well.
There are some different groups of turkeys, one flock has well over a dozen birds in it. It does seem as if they’ve figured out that our little poultry farm is a good place to hang out. Even the chickens are letting them join them in the yard. 🙂

Love seeing them next to each other. The guineas look quite petite next to the turkeys!
And they don’t seem at all intimidated by that fact! 🙂

Great shots, glad they made friends. We have lots of turkeys around here.
They were endangered here in NH at one point, and they’ve really made a great recovery!
One bunch of birds! We see wild turkeys on our walks sometimes. They are so ugly!
They look prehistoric when they run, don’t they? 🙂

That is so cool! My brother has wild turkeys in his yard and Bentley thought it would be a great idea to roll in their poop. It was not. LOL!
Luke is always on the lookout for the poop when we’re walking – ugh!

How sweet there are multiple fowl species sharing territory. Must be a real blast watching them interact.
It provides endless entertainment around here! 🙂

We have wild turkeys in our neighborhood too. I love watching them. 🙂 Last week I saw some in a yard and the cat was stalking them. I whipped out my cell because I didn’t want to miss that, but the turkeys must have figured something was up and moved along.
One of our late cats used to stalk them too. We’d laugh at him since the turkeys were so much bigger than he was!

Those turkeys know where there might be some good food!
I’m surprised they don’t come right up to the garage where we have a feeder for our birds!
I’m glad that the guinea hens and chickens are making new friends 😉 I don’t blame the turkeys–I want to hang out in your yard, so if I had the chance, I might follow their lead!
Thank you – it is a pretty nice place to hang out! 🙂
they look like the bigger cousins of the guineas… and I bet they enjoy the company of each other ;O))
They do seem to enjoy hanging out together!
