Bourbon Red Turkeys


Turkeys, as a rule, are NOT the "sharpest tool in the shed".  Over the years we've kept turkeys of all colors and currently have these Bourbon Reds.  As this tom's tail indicates, I snapped this shot quite late in the season.  Normally, every feather is in place and picture perfect.  I love to hear the low pitched "belch" a gobbler makes as he struts his stuff for most anything that will hold still for it.  From sun up to sun down -- 7 days a week.. this guys spends each minute trying to impress.
