Yesterday morning when I was feeding the animals, I noticed three wild tom turkeys fighting in our donkey pasture. One of them had the good sense to leave, but the other two kept on fighting. I thought about running in for my camera but I figured they would be gone by the time I got back. Not by a long shot! I fed all the animals, collected eggs, filled waterers, and they were still engaged in mouth to mouth contact. I went to the shed, filled my feed buckets and returned to the house for my camera, certain they would be gone when I got back outside. Nope, they were still at it! I shot 15 minutes of the hour long fight on video before running them off.
I think the funniest thing was the reaction of the donkeys. Diana interrupted her breakfast a few times to mess with them, but other than that, it was as if they were having breakfast and a movie.
I don’t even have a comment about this.
Please enjoy the video. Warning, it is long and a bit freaky.
