Turkeys


I am a fan of turkeys. They are sort of ugly but they are beautiful too in their own way. 
Last week I watch the documentary "My Life as Turkey" on PBS. It was about a man who raised a clutch of wild turkeys from egg to adulthood. It was very interesting and at times quite sad.

These photos were taken at my friend Sandy's farm. You can read her blog here

Turkeys sure have some amazing feathers.
Actually the property I live on was a turkey farm wayyyyyyy back when.

I usually go to a cousin's for Thanksgiving and there are a lot of wild turkeys in their woods. Kindof ironic/creepy/funny? when they sit on their porch rails while we eat their domesticated version.

GORGEOUS photos as always. Interesting creatures. I may have to grant clemency to the one I have slated for dinner. Take care. HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

I just love your turkey pictures Jen! And I'm especially partial to the ones of my own, of course. Haven't gotten a chance to see the show yet. Now that you say it's sad, I'm not so eager. :-( You know how I love them. :-) Gotta go . . . It's 8pm and I'm just starting dinner. Thanks for the mention too. ;-D

Fabulous post! I really love the photo with the deer in the background. I just may have to check out this documentary!

I learned to love turkeys from my friend, Sara's blog (Redpinemountain.com). She keeps her turkeys and doesn't eat them. They go for walks with her and one even was a bit amorous towards her--she had to beat them off with an umbrella as she hid under her truck!

They are certainly silly looking birds with a silly personality as well. :)

I love turkeys too, especially wild ones we have up here in Ontario.

the picture of the turkey with the deer in the background is probably the BEST turkey picture I've ever seen. You need to send that somewhere!!

Jen, they are most handsome, in their own turkeyish way. And again, you have presented some superb photos! Thank you, and thank Sandy, too!!!

i think they are really neat looking, ugly but cute and their feathers are gorgeous when the sun hits them
