I told myself, I'm not chasing 9 turkeys around tonight, if they don't go inside the barn, they can stay outside and use the run in shed to sleep in. The dogs are there, they'll be safe.
I've spent many nights of my life chasing turkeys. In more ways than one.
I put Snick and Maggie in their special house, they are a couple after all. And the other group came around to see what was going on. I told them, "you've got one chance, if you don't follow me into the barn and to your roosts, you are not going in because I'm not chasing you to get you in."
They followed me in. No problem. All of them.
I guess they are smarter than I think they are. Anyone who deals with turkeys knows sometimes they can be very stupid. But now I also know, other times they can be very smart. When Snik came it took 2 weeks for him to figure out how to go inside at night. These guys - 1 day.
