I'm still fairly new to turkeys but if you want a good lap turkey, yeah, I'd go with Bourbon reds. My Eve is the biggest lap turkey of all lol
Cream Crested Legbars, BCM, Rhodebars, bearded silkies, good laced/buff laced polish, black/lavender ameraucanas
Bourbon red, red bronze, royal palm, mottled black
I also make hen saddles, PM me for details!
I have noticed that Annie is the one who will really figure out things. Took her several days of investigating the chicken coop, but she figure out how to get her big butt in a nest box to lay. Currently she is trying to figure out the chicken feed treadle. Daisy prefers to lay in my lap eating bon bons!
Ralphie - Sounds like totally icky weather where you are. We're getting lots of rain, but it's not very cold. Chocolate and schnapps is still sounding pretty good though.... I think I'll follow your example (I have some hot chocolate mix on hand and I'm sure that will be a reasonable substitute)
I hate that we've hit that time of the year where it's getting dark as I get home from work at the end of the day - it seriously cuts into my bird time after work

I would love to Jake`Nap But I'm afraid my reason for Napping is very different then what your thinking of...I can only think of sneaking over grabbing a turkey stuffing it in a bag and then hiding it in my oven for safe keeping.. I do know Ralphie loves his turkeys and I'm afraid if i get caught i would be banned from all offered courses..
all joking aside i would Love to get turkeys... I would love to have a entire flock like Ralphie has.. when i left his place it made me want to sell my suburban home and buy some farm land...
