Today's Wednesday Meet a Turkey star is Ginger!!!
Ginger is one of 20 turkeys. He has a girls name because my wife named him. She was not sure if he was a boy or girl when she named him. She was hoping for girl. His bellybutton behaviors where evident early on and she was informed he was going to freezer camp and the smoker unless he ended up being a girl.
I won, He is in his last week here at Judy's Chicken Ranch. He likes to chase chickens, beat on harmless mellow roosters. He is blind, and we think it is contagious. He will run by the door to his pen 40-50 times before going in. All the rest of the turkeys can be lured into the pen with corn, oats and BOSS. Ginger refuses to be lured.
Ginger really has no redeeming qualities. He was the only red bird to survive to adulthood. He is a DD, this is double dominant slate, there is some old research on a turkey with DD having a greater chance of eye problems than others. If you look you will see he has smaller than normal eyes. So he may actually have poor eye sight. You would think if he did he would use a white cane and sun glasses.
Kloppers your idea was so good I stole it, How did I do?
