Last spring, we heard someone knocking at the door. Our rural home rarely gets visitors, so when we heard it,
we checked both doors and no one was there. Our Dogs were barking and convinced. I asked if she had a load of
laundry going as an unbalanced load will sometimes make some noise. Nope. We then heard it
again coming from downstairs. It sounded like someone was trying to break in through the sliding door. I sneaked down
the stairs and peeked around the corner at the door and could not stop laughing. This has been going on daily since early
spring with the addition of a local guinea fowl hen.
This is a vid I shot not long ago. We have a guinea fowl hen that has been hanging out with our local flock of turkeys. She's is very
bossy and chases away the other hen turkeys from her favorite two toms, and even keeps the dozen or so grouped together. If they
get too far apart, she rounds them up like a cattle dog would.
My guess is that when these turkeys showed up at her place mid spring, she decided to go on a walkabout. She is probably someones
farm hen from within a mile or so.
In this vid, she puts up with them knocking at the door for a bit,
and then decides to break up the action. This has been going on daily since early spring.
The turkeys can see a perfect reflection of themselves,
both in the morning and again toward evening in the glass window and door,
which has them sparring with themselves. Hilarious.
