Little more turkey poop

The J shaped poop is from a gobbler
the little ball is from a hen

Get out after a rain and look for tracks around puddles. Easy to see and if the turkeys are there, odds are they will want a little drink.

Yes, I counted 28 birds in this flock. The big toms are seperate now, but were gobbling a bit already last week. Here's the same feeder at night full of hogs. Man, my feed bill....LOL
