Something I have been pondering for a while and its finally bugged me long enough to actually ask about it......................... Reading on another thread about an escaped heritage turkey - she went off with a wild flock - and most everyone was saying catch it or shoot it, you dont want it cross breeding and contaminating the wild genes. Why not? Surely all turkeys are descended from the wild birds??? Why be upset if a few of them mix with the wilds if they are their DIRECT descendants? I dont mean to throw the cat amongst the pigeons but I really want to know.
