I'm taking my Bourbon Reds to get butchered tommorrow and Tuesday. It always makes me sad...they are so beautiful right now and are just coming into their prime. Their feathers are finally filled out and I swear, they love this cold weather because they dance and "play" every morning when I let them out to pasture. Such a shame that they are being butchered now. but they were raised to be Thanksgiving turkeys, and I certainly can't keep 30 of them around all winter long, plus they're already paid for. Caught the first one and put him in a crate for the ride to the butcher tonight. couldn't get the truck, so he's riding to the butcher in my honda (in a crate).
