Saturday’s Critters – The Chickens on Turkey Mountain


I went on a bike ride on Tulsa’s River Parks trails and everything was going great in my slow plodding kind of way when I saw some chickens on the trail where it passes the base of Turkey Mountain. So I had to stop and check them out. There were only two of them and the lighting is kind of dim. I had read facebook posts the past few weeks where people had discussed seeing chickens and there was lots of speculation on where they come from and what is to become of them.


They remind me of the chickens that you see everywhere in the rural parts of Hawaii. I guess they can thrive there I don’t know about chickens on their own in Oklahoma. We have lots of coyotes and I wonder what they will do when the weather gets cold. I’ll be interested in how they do.

    Tornadoes and other natural “high wind” disasters that uproot farm buildings and blow the livestock away can account for these feral poultry. The animals get picked up in the high winds and deposited miles from their homes. Eventually, they blend into the food chain. They help keep some insect populations in check while becoming fair game for coyotes and bobcats.

    I guess they are the free ranging chickens. I wonder how far is their range? They are all over Key West Fla too. Thank you for sharing your post. I appreciate the comment and visit. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!
