My Life as a Turkey - what a great little film! (won an Emmy for Outstanding Nature Programming)

After a local farmer left a bowl of eggs on Joe Hutto’s front porch, his life was forever changed. Hutto, possessing a broad background in the natural sciences and an interest in imprinting young animals, incubated the eggs and waited for them to hatch. As the chicks emerged from their shells, they locked eyes with an unusual but dedicated mother. One man’s remarkable experience of raising a group of wild turkey hatchlings to adulthood.

Watch on line for free here: [www.pbs.org]

or buy the DVD that includes 'Natural History of the Chicken' - also a wonderful little film [www.shoppbs.org]

My Life as a Turkey 8.7 [www.imdb.com]
The Natural History of the Chicken: 7.0 [www.imdb.com]

It is streaming on Netflix HD. Looks even better than on my 24" iMac.

The camera operator must also have imprinted on the birds. Really nice film, thanks Hal.
