Baby Turkeys

So I was packing for the move yesterday and I went to the living room to get another box and there in my driveway, not more than 30 feet away was a flock of least four hens and possibly thirty chicks.  This photos is a few of the chicks just as a hen spotted me in the livingroom window.  People don't realize just what good eye sight they have and just how well they can fly.  They were in the air and halfway across my lawn before I could get out the front door right beside the window.  I am amazed that hunters can ever get a wild turkey.   Did you know that Ben Franklin wanted the wild turkey to be our national bird instead of the bald eagle?
