Excuse me for jumping in here from another continent of BYC, but I have to say "Bless you" to all of you who are willing to take the time, expense and care to raise happy turkeys. I had Xmas dinner at my mother's house and brought an 18-lb organic free range turkey for dinner (I didn't tell her how happy a turkey it was because she freaks out about spending money on that kind of thing. She's old.). Of course, it was an incredibly tasty bird. But what really amazed me, as the official carver, was the powerful and well developed legs and wings of a bird that has spent its life the way it was supposed to. The strong, sturdy bones and tendons of a bird that has roamed freely and flapped and flown. It was really a revelation, and I felt very happy knowing that the bird had a full and normal bird life. So I just had to pop in here and offer my appreciation! Thank you all, and happy holidays.
