    I see these almost every day at work at all hours. This time a fellow employee drove up in the work van on campus to take some photos and "clucked" a few time and said that the hens came a running immediately followed by the toms. Wish I would have been there to see that.

    I like the color on that hen. Saw a pic in a magazine, they called it smoke phase.

    rumor had it that they brought the turkeys on campus, but they have been here for probably the last 5-7 years and they are growing in size and number. now there are somewhere around 20 birds.

    This smoke phase, do they grow out of it or will they always look like that?
