Turkey Hen and Chicks

This morning while out feeding the horses I saw a wild hen turkey with ten chicks. The hen was resting and the chicks were all huddled close together next to their mother. It was a lovely experience and made my morning feeding ritual unforgettable. I did not want to frighten the mother hen so I side stepped around the hay wagon in hopes she would not be frightened. As the hen moved on along the fence row the tall grass wiggled as each chick passed unseen. It has been, "A Painting Day".
