Let's talk Turkey!!!

Now that Thanksgiving
have passed...

I thought it was safe to post my photos
of the adorable turkey family
we ran across
when out for a drive one day.....

There were so many babies, I couldn't count them because they were running across the road so fast.

Just look at the babies!!:

The "crossing guards" checking the road to see if it was safe for
the "kids" to cross....

These two looked so different! I think they were both males? But maybe it was Mom and Dad?:

Taking "Junior" out on the road!:

Whew!!!  MADE it to the other side!!:

Next group! Headem' up..roll 'em out!:

You can see by the color of the GREEN grass that this was late, late summer
even before the leaves changed colors:

"Ooooo, Awwwww, that pavement is HOOOOOOTTTT!":

"Hurry up, kids....and quit arguing whose turn it is to go first...we're talkin' possible
Semi-trucks here...let's MOVE IT!":

And, answer your question...
No, I don't know what Stove Top dressing is....
but I don't have a good feeling about it......
and I heard those humans over there talking about having a
NEW YEAR's dinner....
not EVERYONE makes Prime Rib you know!!!

Cute. I've seen Canada Geese crossing the road and always marvel at their road sense.

MadSnapper said...

this post wins you the "most adorable" award... i have seen ducks crossing the road with babies, and also opossums, but never these sweet families. what an experience you had, so glad you captured this for us to enjoy.

Jeanette said...

Those baby turkeys are adorable! In the last picture the little white one looks like he's completely in the air! I'm glad they made it across safely!

Ginnymo said...

Cutest Guinea Fowl I have seen in a long Grandpa used to raise them:)

Gail Wilson said...

I had a flock of Guinea Fowl just like these when I had horse property and because of them there was never a snake on my land. They are wonderful hunters and always came home to rooste in the barn everynight.
Happy New Year, Gail, Mistaya and Maggie
