I butchered one of my RP toms for Christmas dinner, had it tonight. I was a little worried since I have heard they are not often used for eating due to lack of meat. There was five of us eating (two kids) and there was lots, even some left for a few more meals. It was the best turkey any of us have ever had!! Also the first heritage turkey we ever had. It was about 7 m/o... I am so impressed I will never have a store bought turkey again.
