Odd Turkey Behavior?

Today after checking my treestands I noticed something I thought was a little odd. On my way home I saw maybe 3-5 either young jakes or hens walking together alongside the road. There were also maybe 6-8 poults with them. Is this common behavior for birds to group together like this with their young? Or was it just someone not that out of the ordinary?
It's not unusual Eric. Except during breeding season turkeys often group together in flocks. We often see groups of hens with poults.

Loosely related, I've seen a few all-gobbler (bachelor) groups in the last three or four weeks. It's almost as if we're just gonna head straight into mid-fall.

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.

Thanks for your replies guys. It was just something I thought was a little odd at the time (of course I know little to nothing about turkey behavior).
You're most welcome Eric. You learn by asking. Makes us old geezers feel useful when we can pass on knowlege.
