I agree with blue red slate. She is sure a beautiful hen!
I also agree that Penguin is not a black. As a chick, he looked like a black, but that face mask is just evident in chicks that have the black gene.
The barring on his wings would suggest something else...
So, what do y'all think. I have a chocolate, a blue slate or "splash", hen... should I get a "splash" tom or a self blue tom?! R2Elk has generously offered me one of his extra toms!
I am thinking (with help from the calculator) that I will go with the self blue. Thoughts?
Really though, most of the babies will be for food. My DH is BARELY letting me have 3 turkeys for keeps...
I don't get why though. We have enough land.. they just like his deck.
It is a frigid day here in the mountains of Northern Colorado. We stacked another cord of wood. I doubt we have enough. I think we need a third.
BUT, hubs took the day off for the wood staking extravaganza (really it took an hour... ) and we have been drinking white Russians since 2:00. Perfect day.
We will be eating venison tenderloin with butternut squash from the garden for dinner. Delish!
NO Ralph, not the fresh venison pictured in the photo above.
