I have Bourbon Reds that were hatched May 2. That would make them a bit over 6 months old at Thanksgiving. I wasn't planning on butchering so soon, and mine are free ranged so maybe on the small side compared to penned and fed birds. But my kids have decided to come home for Tday, so now I can either butcher one of ours early or pay a hideously high price for somebody else's heritage bird that was humanely raised. So, how undernourished and scrawny looking would a Bourbon Red actually dress out at 6 months old? Will my family burst into laughter at the sight of our pitiful, emaciated turkey laid out on the platter? Or will it look like a regular turkey, just small? And finally, if I go ahead and have one for Thanksgiving should I plan on "finishing" him somehow with corn or grains or something? I have a lot of extra milk since I'm milking 3 cows. Thanks!
