    My daughter and Granddaughter were coming home from the lake today and a turkey flew up and hit the windshield!!! When the initial shock wore off, Shyla just burst into tears(She is due to have her baby in a few weeks and gets emotional) So Teegyn says" Dont cry Mama! Mama its OK, see I have the feathers!!!!!!) :lol: :lol: :lol: (The sun roof was open!!!!)

    Oh, my. Sorry that happened. They can cause such damage. I hope her ins. covers it b/c it's and act of GOD. Or maybe that's only home owners, I don't know.

    I'm glad that they're ok. That would probably scare me half to death.

    My husband hit a deer and our insurance covered it and a huge branch fell out of the tree and went through the windshield while he was driving and again, they covered it. Of course the insurance company charged us the deductible, but we fought it and won that, so we got reimbursed the full price of the repairs. I think it depends on whether or not you have comprehensive insurance.

    I'm sorry I hit the submit button too fast, I also wanted to say, I am very happy to hear that your daughter and granddaughter are ok. It is a scary thing to hit an animal, especially one that hits the windshield.

    Oh, Melissa--how scary!!! I would have cried too-and I am not 8 months pregnant! I am SOOOO glad that Shyla and Teegyn are okay.

    The insurance will cover it-my sister in law had a turkey fly into her car and rip the side mirror off. The insurance did not hesitate to pay. Of course, having the car repaired is not your first concern---the welfare of your family is all that matters.

    Thanks goodness they are both OK. What a mess that bird made of the windshield. Hope the insurance covers it.
