    We are! I've been playing with the idea for a week now... Put them on adult game bird feed this past week and next monday is their DDay! Or at least one of them......maybe 2... I ended up with 3 males and 2 females and the males are fighting horribly. I want to try some midget whites - I hear they are the best!

    midgets are great tasting, and breed well too, I've got over 20 to take down by turkey day

    Umm...already cooked ours last week. Couldn't resist the urge to try a Bourbon Red. The flavor was incredibly turkey-ish. Kind of made the supermarket ones taste flabby and insipid in comparison.
