I harvested two turkeys yesterday, one Royal Palm, a heritage breed. The other was a wild turkey that I raised here as a regular member of my flock. Someone in town found the babies in their yard and took them to the feed store. I bought four of them, along with four blacks, four narragansetts, and two midget whites to total 14 turkeys to raise and sell for this Thanksgiving season. I ended the season with only three turkeys living! The coyotes were clever this year.
I am cooking the Royal Palm today for our Thanksgiving dinner.
Here is to wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but I have a lot to be thankful for.
