Wow...thats about all I can think of to say. I did not get him processed as soon as he should have been so ended up with a 34lb bird after cleaning and everything. That is the first WOW. Second WOW was how different the feel of the bird was... the skin and texture just felt different. once cooked the skin was thick and crispy and reminded me of a potato skin... Third WOW was the flavor... I fed an 18% all flock but they free-ranged most of the time. Including destroying my garden...... The white meat was almost as dark as most store bought dark meat and the dark meat was so rich and flavorful... As one of my friends put it " it has a really clean flavor" I was very impressed with a homegrown bird and took pride in knowing that I raised that bird and knew exactly how it was cared for and that it lived a great life before providing for me and my family. My parents did not think that it would be worth it, but I now have permission to raise turkeys again next year.... as long as I process them before they hit 42lbs live weight lol. Hope everyone had a blessed and awesome Thanksgiving.
