    Ok I have four of my 5 Naragansetts that I will be keeping. There are 3 girls and 1 boy. Boy number 2 will be gracing us with his presence at the christmas table. I am clueless as to what to name the keepers.
    The boy has really pretty markings and is very nice. One of the girls is a love bug and will let you do almost anything to her. Girl number two is the bossy type and doesn't like anyone around me but her. Girl number three is kind of skittish and shy.
    So anybody willing to help. What do you name a turkey??!!

    Well you could go with the old cliche names for turkeys. Such as, Tom and Turkey Lurkey. Those names probably account for 90% of all named turkeys out there. Ive always liked Gobbles myself. Sorry i cant help you more, im not feeling very original this morning.

    we have one hen and one tom. I named the hen Hokie for my beloved VA Tech Hokies. Hubby is a FA Gator fan so he named the tom, Chokie. [​IMG]
    They are big birds so sometimes we affectionately call them Lord and Lady fatty.
