BarnBNB - Trina the Turkey

One day, what we thought was probably a wild turkey just showed up around the homestead. It just started hanging out like it had always been here...moved into the barn at night, and ended up staying around. We didn't really know what to make of it.

Well, after some research, we believe it's a she, and that she is a Black Turkey — a heritage breed, which makes sense because of its friendliness. Where it came from we don't know, but unless we discover an owner, we've decided to keep her, as there is a person in the general area that has what we think are the same breed, and so we're planning on looking into seeing if we can get her a mate!

And, we decided to call her Trina...Trina the Turkey. :)

Here is a video of our story thus far with her, from introduction day to various times of her interaction with the homestead!

We're thankful for the new visitor, and we pray the Lord direct us as to what He would have for us with her, if anything.

I think the Lord is sending you pheasants and turkeys instead of quail in the wilderness! I hope you have fun with your unexpected blessings :)
