On Wednesday when Michael and I went to breakfast at our favorite diner, we had a pleasant surprise. When we pulled into the diner parking lot, we were greeted by a flock of wild turkeys feeding and strutting in the parking lot. It was an awsome experience for me. I was surpised that they did not move when cars or people approached them. At one point they tried to cross Rt. 38 which is a busy highway. It was almost like they knew they were safe because the spring turkey season has not started here in New Jersey yet.

Pretty awsome experience for me. I am a city girl born and bred.

I see turkeys all the time but rarely do I see them with the tails extended that way. We do have at least one that's been hanging around because I hear him calling just about every morning.

The cute little red fox I saw a couple of weeks ago has my top billing for now. Adorable little face, small in stature.

Following behind him are the groomed wild schnauzer and the red collared wild lab who came to visit today.

This townie moved to the mountain for just these sorts of views.

Neat picture. I've never seen a farm raised turkey least of all a wild one. However I am acquainted with the Wild Turkey that comes in a bottle.

Some people here are trying to pass a bylaw allowing people in the city to keep chickens in their backyards. I'm still trying to get my head around how if chickens carry so many diseases that chicken farmers have to decontaminate after working on their farms, it would be safe for people to have them in their gardens.

Anyone who wants to have chickens in the backyard probably doesn't realize how much those things poop. Often and at very inconvenient places. And how much the dig around. All day scratching the ground. That would kill a backyard pretty fast.

Plus it is probably not very safe to eat anything grown inside a city. All that pollution in the air settles right on the ground where the growing plants take in with their roots and the animals feeding on them take it in as they eat. Quite a source for heavy metal bioaccumulation.

RABBITS!!! Them cute little bunnies!
Yeah every year my back yard is killed from their night time fun ... they let out a spray or something during mating that will kill your lawn forever! I swear my yard is the orgy yard for every rabbit within a mile -- and there are zillions of them!
Folks complain about the coyote - but they keep the bunnies to a minium!

And I live in a city! not the middle of nowhere, lol

It's got to be cheaper then buying Coyote pee (that's what the experts tell me I need to get to keep them away)

Not so sure about that. Couldn't be easy to make them squat to collect it. Laughing

BTM you pay the shipping and feeding and I'll send you my solution to your rabbits - my weimaraner. She loves chasing them (as well as squirrels). After a few nights of their frolicing being interrupted, those rabbits will find a new place to play.

Then again, the neighbors might not appreciate the 2am, 2:10am, 2:15am barking sprees.

Or you could consider adopting a Jack Russell. Longwood Gardens in PA/Del area used a couple to keep the deer from their roses. The deer never got a chance to nibble - the dogs kept at them at the time.
