Taste of Turkey

A humourous part of visiting this farm was meeting the turkey who barked like a dog.  This barker is the one with it's neck stretched out and pictured in the thumbnail.

 

Photo two: dirty camera, not dirty turkeys.

they are fairly large birds, Mary.
Care MacADNski: Yes, and they are going to grow another three weeks, destined for the Christmas market. I am guessing each one of them has been spoken for already too.
Nice shots, Mary!
Interesting music - I'd not heard of him (them?) before?
Care MacADNski: Another new one for me too. I listen to new music every day. Now you know why I like YOUR turkey shots.
Perfect timing for America's Thanksgiving Day yesterday, Mary! smile
Care MacADNski: I wish I'd though of that when posting a couple of weeks ago. One day late from someone who is never late. :-(

They are such funny looking critters..
Care MacADNski: This one was hilarious. He was trying to sound like the Pyrenees but they had different vocal ranges. The farmers were amused at first......

I hope they made it after Thanksgiving.... no wonder the one barks, they think he is a dog and not be taken towards the kitchen. wink...
Great shots, we don't see them often here in the Netherlands.
Care MacADNski: The farmers think this was a male. It is much bigger than the rest and protects the rest of the turkeys. These will grow another three weeks, destined for the Christmas market. I am guessing each one of them has been spoken for already too.
Not a good time of year to be a turkey
Care MacADNski: They have three and a bit more weeks to exist but they have had an excellent life at this farm.

How weird is that then.
Care MacADNski: He was hilarious. He was trying to sound like the Pyrenees but they had different vocal ranges. The farmers were amused at first...... They think he was a male amongst all females.

Are Canadian turkeys safe during US Thanksgiving?
Care MacADNski: Yes. Most are for the Christmas market. October turkeys ar a bit more expensive to raise as they would need heat indoors for a couple of months. With Dec turkeys, you buy the chicks when the weather has warmed enough for them not to require heat.

Destined for someone's dinner?
Care MacADNski: These are Christmas turkeys and have a bit more growing to do.
Those Turkeys are a bit different to those we have over here.
Care MacADNski: Like chicken or ducks, there are many breeds of domestic turkey. Another farmer I know has the usual grey ones.

Perhaps it was hoping to be mistaken for a dog to save it ending up as a Thanksgiving meal?
Care MacADNski: Maybe so. It must really bonded with the dog.

they are quite dirty, aren't they?
Care MacADNski: No, as mentioned, that is my lens, not the turkey.
Totally cool turkeys!

They are most interesting fowl, and I like your proof!
Care MacADNski: I kept wondering if the dog takes offense at this.
