    I wish I could bring Penguin to you! I will check with the motels we will be staying in and see what their Turkey policies are. I hope they have turkey walk areas.

    Here are some pictures of Penguin. Maybe one of you can tell me if he really is a black or not. He has white dots and some brown on his tail. He seldom displays so it is hard to see. He knows I want him to display and he is so contrary he just refuses!

    Penguin is too cute! He's JJ x Ethel, right? And they are red slates? No idea what color he would be. Still learning that.

    They are rusty slates.. R2elk said they could have like 50 different types of babies. ( do not quote me on the 50) I just know it was a lot.

    That's right. I Remember that. So I have a house in Ste. Genevieve Mo., and of course Memphis. Family is in St. Louis. Depending on your route, we could plan turkey excersise stops! :D

    Genetically, what produces a rusty slate?

    Heck...one dog crate draped with a towel & he'll sleep the whole way. You need to train him go walk on a harness. I can just picture you walking a turkey at rest stops with all the folks walking their dogs!!

    While your were in the woods I figured out the Porter calculator! Rusty slates produce just about every thing!

    I think I am reasonably intelligent, but I just do not get that thing. I may have to take an hour and really study it.
