Camera Critters Sunday #4

Several years ago, my husband and I decided to try raising

some turkeys, so we ordered 12 Broad-Breasted Bronze

chicks from our local co-op.  Sadly 2 of them died early on,

but the other 10 survived and grew up to be quite big.

There was 4 toms and 6 hens.   We used to let them loose

and they would walk around the yard and eat grass and

pick grit in the driveway.  We never did butcher them, we just

kept them until they all died on their own.

I liked to go sit in the coop with them and watch them,

and take pictures of them,and one day when they were about

4 weeks old, I went in and sat with the camera held low and

simply waited for them to get curious and close to the camera

so I could get a good close picture.  This is the shot I ended

up getting and it has always been a favorite of mine.

To me, it looks like he is saying, “are you my mama?”
