Erik is a Wild American Turkey! He is amazing—he is so social that he follows people walking around the ranch.

He will follow them anywhere they go. He will also gobble a lot through the day, starting around 6:00 am! Affectionately known as "Little Erik" he is smart as a whip and can run faster than the dogs! (This has been proven!) He is smart enough to put himself away at night, upstairs in the barn. He literally hears our voices in the house and will stand outside the window if you are in the kitchen, bedroom, or where ever, just to be near us. We love him very much and he is a very important part of the family!
