    Way off the topic, but raise a glass and toast yourselves! (or us, which ever is grammatically correct.)

    We are listed as the third most active thread for the last 24 hours! An active thread means great people that like to talk turkey!

    Grats to us!

    Thanks for the help identifiying my little mystery! I'm thrilled that she's a she. She's such a sweet girl (and my first turkey).

    And congrats to us for chatting so much :)

    I will raise my coffee in a cheers!

    Ralph, I don't wish to see you dole out false information and be humiliated amongst all the good people of the 3rd most active thread...
    I just like to chuckle when you are wrong. Especially since you added your byline about all the boorish people.[​IMG]


    On the topic of FeistyChick's mystery turkey, I agree with bronze. You can also see spur bumps on their legs by that age. At least with mine I could. That should help you figure out gender.
    With the smaller snood though, Dinner has a smallish snood. Doesn't hang past his beak at all. But he has spur bumps and gobbles. And likes to strut by anything that moves.

    I'll go get a recent pic of the babies.
