Nice looking bird, i like the color too, he would fit in well here, with my calico flock.
Aurora - FINALLY, some pictures He is a gorgeous boy! Big too. I love his coloring and he poses so nicely for pictures
GG is on the right, Tonto left. They just had a major strutt off while we were closing up some gaps in the coop. So we're sure he is a Gorge not a Gloria. Tonto will likely go back to the neighbors. If I can find a hen sooner than he gains weight I may have a chance to save him from my husbands plate.
. WOW Adam! He is gorgeous! He's huge for only being 6 months old!! Photo bomb anytime! ! . Now that's a hunk 'o lap turkey!
I've wanted Sweetgrass forever! I'm going to have to live vicariously through you guys!
Ralph....a Sweetgrass & Bourbon Red sound like the perfect additions to the calico flock!
Brandychick...My hens display on occasion. I agree with Ralph. It's hard to really tell in your picture but it looked like a hen to me too. Can you get a closer picture!
A couple of my hens dispay, very occasionally I would think meeting a new turkey is a good time to display as they want to show they are not a push over..
Oh snd it might be old age BUT Ethel hasstarted to make a rudimentary beard. It cannot be seen, but I can feel it when I am petting and rubbing her neck. I showed my DW and she was shocked and asked Ethel if she was in menopause.
Brandy I remember what I wanted to ask you, When "he" displayed was his snood way beyond his beak or not? Was the display a long one or short?
I am disappointed my Jersey Buff is a Tom I think. It dispalys now and then and acts like an Arse, so it most likely is. BUT I keep hoping it is a hen, it has fine legs and a shorter snood. I need a Red hen!
Brandy Chick, Very nice looking turkey even if it is a He.
Aurora, Adam is a very handsome boy. He will make pretty babies with Eve!
Thanks everyone, Adam is my handsome boy
Today was eventful. I went out to the turkey coop to build a poop board and mount the roost above it and found that Cupid and Able had decided that they were going to fight today. They only have about a week left with us! We may just butcher them this weekend instead if i can talk hubby into it. They look AWFUL! They didn't look like this, this morning :/
I have Able in the cage now for his own protection. Cupid is the more dominant one.
I did manage to do the roost after getting them separated. Here's what the coop looks like now. The poop board still needs painted but i can do that later.
Pebbles just hanging out, watching me take pictures.
They have to settle pecking order. It's sad and painful. I separated mine to.
