I've seen some really pretty turkeys. I think a Royal Palm turkey in the yard would be nifty. I would not be able to kill it. I name everything and it's done, they're mine forever. Will the average tom turkey be able to grow and get around comfortably for a lifetime. I don't want an animal that will soon become cumbersome and sickly, I want a pet. I know it sounds like a waste to many, but is it even humane?
