Wild turkeys fly from Jennifer Jilks on Vimeo.
Buster Brown chased the turkeys away today, New Year's Eve. One flew up over the house! What a character! He is about 10 lbs., they have to be triple that, with 4" wide sharp claws, but it's all in your attitude! We walk in the forest together in the snow. He's been teaching his siblings to catch mice, climb trees, climb on furniture. He is their playmate and pillow!
