    My Tommy tipped the scale over 55lbs! Had to quarter him for turkey dinners, 1/4 for this Thanksgiving. Thanks be to Tommy!

    Yikes that's huge! How old was he? I'll take it he was a BBW? I have a BBW that I purchased mid July that I'm hoping makes a fairly large thanksgiving day bird.

    Yes, very heavy footed! A high heart-attach risk.
