May 1st I went to Lights at Stone Mill in Abingdon and picked up 11 of these cuties...what are they???
Mammoth Bronze Breasted Turkeys. The Toms should dress out at 40 lbs and the hens should dress out at about 30 lbs. These are Christmas gifts for close family and friends that said they'd like one.
This isn't the greatest picture, but here they are at 6 weeks. They're growing like weeds and already gobbling. I have to say, they are not the brightest of God's critters, but they are sweet and let me hold them. I'll grow them until October or November and then I'll process them just like I did with the chickens. YUM!
