    I have my turkeys locked up in breeding pens now so I was surprised when my husband came in today and told me Amos had escaped again. When I went out to check there was Amos in his pen being a good boy for once . . . My husband was scratching his head and saying "what the heck . . . " then we spotted this guy

    wondering if the experts can tell me what he might be . . . besides a rover [​IMG]

    Looks like a jake from what I can see of his fan. Can't see a beard in any photos, but he looks very healthy.

    He's older I think, he has at least a 6 inch beard and he is really tall much taller than my BSPX

    You have 3 types of turkeys in Idaho, eastern, rio grande and merriam. He looks like a rio but could be a merriam. I can't see a beard but by the look of his spurs, this is his second spring.
