Thanks to Nicole for sharing these cute photos of a mother turkey and her children, who were out & about in Claycord.
No dinner or Thanksgiving jokes please.
Two turkeys walk into a bar on Thanksgiving …
Those chicks grew awfully fast.
That is so cool.
I saw a bunch of them in the Sun terrace area a while back but have not seen them since.
I LOVE that! Those are adorable! Thanks, Nicole!
Awww that’s so cute.
Mayor, nice to see some positive things on claycord! Love it!
Are ugly-bird jokes acceptable?
Thanks for sharing positive news here. All we get on broadcast is negativity so sometimes it’s the little things, right?!
Mmmmmmmmm…… Not even serious questions about the legality of capturing a few and pen raising them for just a few months maybe?
Aw shucks, I was gonna make a Thanksgiving joke.
Gobble gobble gobble……..
These are cute, as apposed to the turkey’s who beg for money with their children then get into their bmws and drive home.
As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!
Turkeys can fly, just not too far or too high. They manage to fly up about 20′ into my oak tree & hop onto & off of my roof all the time.
You can’t dump them out of airplanes or helicopters for free turkey giveaways & WKRP Radio promos tho. Oh the humanity!
Thanks for giving us these pictures, mayor. I won’t grill you on these turkeys.
My French professor once defined a “bat” as a large bird with web-like wings.
WKRP In Cincinnati!
Cute pictures but very glad they don’t come into my area! And yes Cowellian, they do fly for a short distance – like to the top of a 2 story home. Interesting to watch a turkey strut on a roof.
I’ve seen a few generations come thru my neighborhood over the last few years, starting with one tom and 3 fems, now, we’ve got easily 8+ that go thru our area (off Pt Chicago). Sadly, one of my neighbors wants them “removed” because they mess up her tanbark.
how human. kill them all. (?) sad.
That’s nothing…………you should see all the turkeys in Washington D.C!!
We recently had mom with 11 turklings in our yard. I would guess they were a day old when I first saw them on a Sunday morning. By Wednesday there were eight. By Friday, five. Didn’t see them for a few days but by then only three. They were about the size of the ones in the picture by then. We haven’t seen them since but it was sad to see how well the other local animals eat when there are baby turkeys around.
I do believe these are the same turkeys who’ve made it a habit to spend the night in a nook in our next door neighbors front yard. One of the chicks got separated from the group yesterday and my roommate was decent enough to give it room and board for the evening. His girlfriend reunited them this morning.
That is a very touching story, DZL.
I believe this is what Cowellian was referring to……
Thanks everyone – the family usually shows up in the morning and evening in Walnut Creek near the Diablo Hills golf course
Dr. Jellyfinger, I rather enjoy your english sense of humor.
At least around here there are hundreds and they can move some earth. Plants. Dirt. Wood chips. And are a huge pain. Ever see the comedy sketch about deer. At first the guy loved seeing them. Awww! WOW! And in one month , HATED THEM!!!!! Compared them to big rats or something.. That is about what happened here. 6 years ago a novelty and cool, now, a huge nuisance and pain in the rear. : (((
But I do admit seeing 4 male turkeys in full display in mating season is a sight to see. Amazing creatures really, just wish they did not do so much damage. But we live in what must be turkey heaven.
I’m REALLY impressed with the memory power of some of you.
It’s not thanksgiving yet. All of the turkeys go into hiding during the holiday season; my shotgun is ready for a nice fat juicy turkey.
Leave the turkeys alone!.
I was attacked by turkeys. Turkeys are not cute, i must eat them!
I agree with yellowranger, it is nice to have a “bubblegum” story on Claycord (once in a while). The WKRP reference cracked me up. All of us that got the reference right away are getting old.
Thats alot of turkey sammiches yummm
I’m greasing up ol’ suzie for the thanksgiving hunt.
