Wordless Wednesday July 20, 2016

 Two Jenny Wild Turkeys with Doe

A male turkey is called a tom or a gobbler, a female turkey a hen,
 and a baby turkey a poult or chick. A young male turkey is called a jake and a young female is called a jenny. A group of wild turkeys is called a flock, a group of domesticated turkeys is commonly referred to as a rafter.
Thanks Sandee for Wordless Wednesday!
(Even though I was not exactly Wordless)

We always get a kick out of seeing wild turkeys wandering around where we live. Great photos!

And a cooked turkey is called Thanksgiving dinner!
