    Saw my first fawn this year. It was having a hard time in the tall grass. Funny to watch. This morning I saw a hen turkey that had 11 little ones. All looked healthy and were feeding and jumping around. Glad to see that the rains didn't get them.

    All baby animals are cute, when I was a kid we raised turkeys and every spring we would get 250,000 poult turkeys, they were cute for about 2 seconds, we would sell most of them after we raised them to range size, and finish out about 80,000, I still hate turkey

    If anyone has ever raised turkey's they will agree that there is no animal on this earth dumber. A horse is a close second.

    Cuban, They are cute when very young. Saw some last Spring near the house and it is cute to watch them as their legs are so short it looks like their sliding along. They were having trouble getting up over the sloped granite curb crossing the street.

    Years ago I was cutting hay. I was about to turn a corner when on the other side of the turn was a hen turkey. I shut everything down. She then went from my front right to my front left then all the way behind the tractor. She chripped three times and the grass to my back right came to life. 1 2 3 and 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 and thn the slow sick one came to make it 12. I didn't think that one was going to make it. She looked them all over then looked at me and walked in the woods. Later that summer she came in the yard to eat malberrys. There were 11. She lost the sick one like I thought she would. She still did a great job raising the 11 she had.

    I think the wild turkeys are smarter than the farm turkeys.

    Benjamin Franklin had great respect for the wild turkey and wanted it to be the national bird.

    I'm glad old Ben didn't get his wish. Can't imagine how roast Eagle at Thanksgiving would taste. Larry
