  1. Well, dear husband([email protected]@2four) and I just processed 3 of our Tom turkeys thia past Monday. It was a day of mixed emotions...we felt bad, sad, etc. Bu then afterwards there was a sense of accomplishment and well, pride that we raised and are eating our own Turkey! Anyhow, they were way overdue--they dressed out at 36.10, 34, and 31 pounds!!! [​IMG] My parents took the smallest one for T-day and are shocked at how big it is! We need a chest freezer for sure now...here is a picture of our 2 1/2 year old son with our largest turkey, (note: when taking this picture, I turned my head for a minute and he started sucking on the drumstick--thank God it was wrapped in plastic! [​IMG] :


    And we actually had to take out a whole shelf to fit them in the freezer:
