Wild Turkeys near Chimney Rock

As I was leaving Chimney Rock a flock of turkeys trotted across the road well out in front of me.

Tom/Hen/Chick/Flock.  But it’s not quite that simple, bucko.  An adult male may also be called a Gobbler.  A newborn may also be called a Poult.  Male offspring are called Jakes and females are called Jennys.  And a group is called a Flock if wild, but if domesticated they are called a Rafter.

Oh, the things you learn on johnboystravelblog…..
