    He is a very handsome guy! I really want a tom turkey. My husband asked me what for, what do they do? And I showed him these pictures. And I told him, "When you look like THAT, you don't have to DO anything!!" I see one in our future. I have to find a breed that is really sweet. I have a place in the barn for one already. Can they be alone, or would two toms be better? It would be with my chickens (all hens) during the day.

    He's about 6 months. I love to pick him up and pet him, but he is getting so heavy. He is so funny he knows if there is a strange animal around and watches them closely untill he's sure it's okay. Someone was kind enough to drop off a kitten and he watches it every time we let it out to play. But our older cats we have had he doesn't pay any attention to.

    He's a bourbon red. We also have a black spanish, a royal palm and one we are not sure what it is . It is a brown with creamish points,

    He is handsome. Turkeys scare me...seriously. I was chased and flogged by two toms when I was 9 and I just like them from a distance now.
