    Steve, not to make this complicated, but is this for education, or just fun, or what type of pics are you seeking (funny/cute, or ones that show breed characteristics)?

    Here are my Bourbon Reds:

    Sort of like the old Italian Rennaissance paintings with the Madonna and Child and (was it John the Baptist and cousin?):

    Help!! I'm too little too be out here on my own... put me back where it's warm!

    Mama with 12 hatchlings out in tall grass (the tiny poults loved it!!! they seem to know how to eat bugs from birth)
    [​IMG]

    Mama at night trying to keep her poults warm underneath her (12 is a LOT to keep warm!). See those little feet poking out underneath?

    Exploring the garden in summertime ... eating lots of bugs.

    Big guys, little guys, all showing off for clueless little hen who wants to know "what's going on!":

    Hey, it's cold and rainy out there... let's go mess up the porch:
    [​IMG]

    Like father like son(s). The two in the back were watching and imitating his every move. He was molting and not happy!
    [​IMG]

    We like to sleep in a row on the top fence rail, but we can't decide which way to face!
    [​IMG]

    Hey, we prefer pasture, but we have "groupthink" and have to walk en masse wherever we go.

    Don't you love the way the setting sun shows off my tailfeathers?

    Quote:Yes we did and the same article was in Backyard Poultry. Now the turkeys all wear sunglasses all the time and you have to make an appt. with their manager to talk to them,

    Annie,
    It was your idea [​IMG] , you mentioned it on the other post. I was thinking we could do it for all. education, identification and just to show off our turkeys! There is so much miss information out there we can show the "real" turkey

    I assume these are broad breasted whites. I got them in April at a chicken swap as just about fully feathered babies. They are my first turkeys. I lost the tom, I'm not sure why. I miss him a lot. I want another tom, a heritage breed this time. I still have my hen.

    This is my friend with my hen.

    This was my tom, please excuse his tail feathers, we had a lot of rain which equaled a lot of mud.
