There's a bunch of these tracks all over our laneway ... Reece's paw prints are in the picture... some sort of huge bird... Turkey?!



There's also big bunny tracks and squirrel tracks!

Turkeys are a fight bird. You definitely don’t want to make one mad...

Good to know. I didn't see any out there but if the dogs ever spotted them they'd be chasing them down in 0.1 seconds.

wHEN i WAS A KID MY DAD BOUGHT 6 BABY TURKEYS WITH THE IDEA OF NOT HAVING TO BUY ANY FOR HOLIDAYS. PROBOLME WAS THOSE TURKEYS "BONDED" WITH US KIDS AND ANYWHERE WE WENT, SO DID THEY. pOPLE IN OUR TINY TOWN GOT THE BIGGEST KICK OUT SEEING US 4 OLDER ONES WALKING DOWN TO THE GENERAL STORE/POST OFFICE, FOLLOWED BY 6 TURKEYS.

cCOME THE FIRST tTHANKSGIVING, DADDY KILLED ONE AND NOT ONE OF US WOULD TOUCH IT. HE SOLD THE OTHER 5. FUNNY THINGM, WE ATE CHICKEN MOST EVERY sUNDAY THAT DADDY KILLED BEFORE CHURCH. WOULD WRING IT'S HEAD AND WE THOUGHT IT FUNNY TO WACH THEM RUN AROUND WITHOUT THEIR HEAD. LOVED THE FIRED CHICKEN. BUT THOSE TURKEYS, WELL, THEY WRE "OUR PETS" SO TO SPEAK.

iT IS STRANGE THAT WE DIDN'T MIND EATING THE CHICKENS dADDY KILLED NOR THE HOGS AND CALVES WE SLAUGHTERED, BUT NOT THOSE TURKEYS.

Looks like big turkey tracks. I have a glorious memory of one chasing my now ex-boyfriend when we went camping one summer. Luckily I didn't have Ranger then or else I'm sure the turkey would have been chasing him and I instead of the ex-bf with me safely laughing from afar!

I saw a video of a turkey chasing a reporter... it chased her into her car then just kept circling around it!!!

Birds are SCARY.

Our turkeys were nice, probably because we handled them from the time they were little. However, we did have a couple of MEAN chickens that would chzae us and not even when they were sitting. My brother was playing disc golf and a goose got after him. Birds can be funny dritters.

Most of those turkeys in your video look like domesticated ones. The wild ones I have seen aren't nearly that big or fat. They also run from me and my dogs. If they gave us any attitude, Jasmine would straighten them out PDQ! lol
