I am not much on turkeys or turkey hunting. But this one caught my eye.
We have a group of hens that frequently come to our feeders, and this time I noticed that one had a beard. My first thought was that it was a jake but I do not usually see jakes hanging out with hens. And the jakes around here have fuller beards and typical tom coloring on their heads, and much darker feathers.
Is this a bearded hen?
