Turkey Harvest

We got up early this morning and harvested three Bourbon Red turkeys (two hens and a tom).  They were not big enough to harvest last Thanksgiving so I thought I would give them a little more time.  Before I knew it, a lot of time had passed!  I let these go a little too long.  I can tell by how difficult the tom was to pluck.  (In my experience, turkeys are much easier to pluck than chickens.  They do still require a scald, though.)  I’m sure they will still taste great!
