    Well I have a friend names Mike. We do poultry trade offs. Well today he stopped over and told me has a turkey he rescued that is a runt. They were going to kill her. He said she might be an egg eater but he dont know. He asked me this question "Would you like her?" Me "Is she friendly and quiet?" Mike "Yeah she just clucks a bit" Ready for my answer??? WTH I will take her. So now when I see him again he will be dropping off a turkey for me. What have I done? Turkeys, ducks, quail and chickens. Next is pheasants right? Lol!

    I cant wait to see her. He said she is a pig with food so I am cool with that. Hope I will get some good sized eggs from her down the road. He said she is young but I am not sure of the age. As soon as she is in my possession I will have pics.
