Turkey Updates

Turkeys, turkeys and more turkeys!  The other day’s original story focused on one flock of six.  Since then, an additional flock has stopped in to visit.  This second, even larger group, consists of three toms and five hens.  Since your average adult wild turkey consumes up to 200 wood ticks each day I couldn’t be happier.  Come one!  Come all! 

Last year, Bon Bon Pond hosted three hens, two of which had chicks.  We’re pleased to report all eleven jakes and jennys survived and were accounted for in early winter.  We’re looking forward to another successful breeding season.
