I was just curious. Sorry if it's a stupid question.
Why not? The pilgrims did. And they look sooo cool. I want some in my yard!
So you just keep them for fun as pets?
I could wear out my keyboard on this one just in brief
They are friendly, escape artists, curious, trouble makers, loveable, hard headed, great pets, eat alot - poop alot, taste great, the toms gobble 24/7, will peck at your toes if you are barefoot, will try to roost on your back when you are bent over filling the feeders, will look you in the eye at the same time - hope they don't peck, they are better than TV to watch them run around and chase each other. That's pretty much the high points
and a pic is worth a thousand words....

Turkeys have personalities. Some chickens do, but I think my turkeys understand something about the people who feed them... something you may have in common with a dog. My turks know the sound of my truck and when they want out, will run to the gate of the pen when I drive down the road. They are easy to train as far as going back to the pen and are really quite stately.
When we figure it out, I'll let you know
They make great dinners. Very nutritious. They make excellent yard art. They are very comical. We like that we are helping the species from going extinct.Around here they make good protection from aerial predators. They also make great guard birds from strangers. Of course there is a million other reasons too, but that would touch on a few of the high points for us.
you guys are getting me closer and closer to buying a turkey baby from the feed store!
Buy the turkey you won't be disappointed better yet get a couple!
