    This was in the Seattle Times this weekend. I thought it might be of interest to those who keep turkeys.

    That's awesome!

    I sell Christmas goose. I tell everyone "Eat as our ancestors did" because they had it right.

    Hey, I caught that too. My parents were hinting that they want me to start raising turkeys.

    ChknGurl, yes a `Self Blue' Slate. He weighed in a 34Lb. last saturday. We are keeping a sharp lookout because someone made off with our neighbor's Bourbon Red (swiped right out of front yard) this past October! This is a shot from last year (is pretty frowsy at the moment just recovering from an `explosive' molt).

    What a good read. Made me happy that people care enough to print an article like that.
