An Update on Turkey Time

Well, as you all know it was my desire to have all white turkeys on the farm. Too that end we bought a white Tom for breeding with the white hen. I also bought a black Tom and several hens to be our Christmas dinner. Sounded like a good plan.

Didn't work.

The day before Christmas I sent word to the farm manager to slaughter three turkeys for the Christmas dinner and he did as directed. However he wanted me to have the biggest turkey for our dinner and so the white tom was selected and is no more. Needless to say Christmas dinner was not good for me. The kids had no such problem and enjoyed the meat very much.

Our turkey population is growing as we now have 6 chicks hatched from our own eggs and I hope one of them is a white Tom. We shall see.
