{Almost} Turkey Time

Do you remember the pictures of our tiny turkeys from a few months ago?

 

 

 

 

 

Well, here is Lacey’s turkey – nearly grown up. He’s a good size but our friends’ turkeys, which are from the same hatch, are even bigger!

 

They still have one month to grow. Will this turkey, aptly named Mr. Gobblepants, remain for winter or not?

Time will tell.
[Really, it’s up to daddy … I’m voting to keep this turkey over winter …]

Gigi - Yes, raising him for meat was the point, so ….. the only way he’d stay is if he had a mate and they could promise us fertile eggs for spring for more turkeys….

L - Eat him for thanksgiving!!! It will be so yummy. Oh I can just taste that fresh, home farm raised meat.
But I know it would be sad to say goodbye…
It’s a toss up!!
