    I have to share a photo of my gorgeous tom. Turkeys are truly amazing animals and I'm totally proud of this big boy.

    Very pretty coloration. He looks like he knows he's handsome but isn't too stuck-up about it.

    He's a VERY nice tom. Self blue also which is a plus for getting just blues.

    Quote:Thanks. When his coloring wasn't coming out like other blue slates I've seen my husband was questionning what he really was. Then of course I read about the self blues. I finally found a young hen for him (not easy to do) so hopefully this spring I'll have some cute little Wobbles running around. His gal pal has typical slate markings though. She's still a cutie though.
