    Hello BYC!
    I have a sort of emergency. I have a turkey (blue slate tom, 6 months old) that I have raised as a pet. He is friendly, funny and smarter than I thought turkeys would be and I need to find him a new home.

    He has gotten so big he is intimidating my 6 chickens. I am looking for a good home for him. He is so trusting and innocent, I'd feel like I betrayed him if he went to some strange place to be dinner. I think he would make a good breeder and a very entertaining friend.

    Is there anyone out there interested in adopting Charlie to be a favorite pet? Please let me know as soon as possible because DH is getting ready to call the butcher. Thank you!!
