A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
We recently acquired a turkey. We have had white turkeys in the past, Tom and Tina, but they went to live on a bigger farm. I was initially not excited but this turkey is handsome.
He is a red bourbon heritage breed and is destined to be dinner so I have not given him a name.
I enjoy hearing him talking to the chickens but lately, he has started following me around the chicken yard. I am not sure if he thinks I am a female turkey or if he sees me as a threat. In any case, I have added the “turkey trot” to my list of farmyard dances which includes the “chicken dance” and “ring around the chicken coop.”
I have learned many skills as a chicken wrangler. Some are very useful in my day job as a music teacher.
