    I'm not sure what we are going to do with the turkey. He poops alot, and he's not exactly friendly. lol He is funny though.

    Very cute flock. I have an EE girl named Brownie that looks like one of yours. Aren't they an awesome breed. Mine are so sweet and you can't beat getting colored eggs.

    I love turkeys to. I have 2 turkey eggs in the incubator on Day 25 right now! [​IMG]

    Thanks for sharing your pics. [​IMG]

    Waiting until October and taking him to the processor might be an idea [​IMG]

    Quote:I know he looks albino, I have no idea what breed he is but he is all white. Actually, I don't even know if it is a he or a she yet. It is about 3 months old, maybe a little more.

    That's what DH wants to do, I am almost with him on it, but I want to replace him asap. He eats bugs right out of the air, and it a good fly catcher.

    Actually, all my chickens free range all day in my backyard and they are my pest control.

    That's a BB White aka Butterball. They are the industry standard for turkeys. You probably can't keep him as a pet as they have legs that will not be able to support his weight after a few more months. That's why I suggested processing.
