Turkey colors are really quite amazing. The different shapes and sizes of their feathers are too. These were some of the critters at tractor guy's house. I wasn't sure if I was going to humiliate myself and run screaming from these guys. When I was around 30 I was terrorized by a huge Tom Turkey for months. When I'd come home he'd run over to my car and I couldn't get out because he'd be trying to attack me. The neighbors would have to distract him while I ran for my apartment. Didn't make it any better that those were my party days. You know, arrive home around 2 a.m. and wonder if the evil turkey was lurking between me and my door. When he found out which apartment I was in, well things just got worse. It's pretty funny now but at the time, I wanted to shoot that turkey.
