I am thankful for my faith, my family, and my farm critters. I am also thankful for CAYENNE PEPPER and GINGER, which cured my four turkeys from blackhead disease! The entire flock had the symptoms. These Toms suffered stunted growth. Today's bird is "only" 23.4 pounds, compared to last year's bird, which was 40 lbs at the same age, but given the fact that I nearly had five dead turkeys, this is quite a victory! Next year's birds will get treated with cayenne from the start so I never have to deal with the horror of blackhead again.
ROTFLOL! He had good reason to be nervous, as he is now in the oven! The remaining Tom is lonely. We felt bad for him, then we saw this video the other night and ROARED. It is really funny:
Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble, Gobble!
P. S. If anyone wants to see what blackhead disease does to a turkey's liver, I posted that in the "other poultry" forum under the titel diseased Turkey Liver.
