I Love Turkeys, No Seriously I Do!
I love turkeys! If I had to pick and could only have one type of poultry on the property, it would be the turkeys I would pick.
They are inquisitive, have distinct personalities and can sense human emotion. In other words, if you are scared of them they know it! This can be funny at times, well for us watching, not the person meeting the bird for the first time.
Thanksgiving and Christmas
We never name the birds we are going to take to the processor. Half of them are Thanksgiving and half of them are Christmas and that’s that.
Though I’m fully aware of where my food comes from. That the turkey on our table was once a wobbling and gobbling bird.
I still over the years have had many pet turkeys. Choco, and Baldy, Brandon, and Bernard to name a few…
I could tell you a lot of crazy stories about my beloved pet turkeys and their antics over the years. Unfortunately, I’m sick with a cold and will be heading to eat my Thanksgiving with family very soon.
So for now, you are going to have to just settle for a whole bunch of pictures of the turkeys that I have had in my turkey farming career!
