We planted some corn for chicken feed but it seems that the wild turkey like it as well. So we decided to leave some for them to eat this winter. It is so pleasurable to watch them walk in a straight line headed for the corn field once or twice a day.
They fly up into the stalks and bend the ear of corn down and eat. At last count we have 21 turkeys. We have decided to grow some extra every year both for them to eat and for our entertainment. Due to the freeze that we had early this year, there are no acorns in the woods for the deer to eat so they to have been eating the corn.
