Turkeys are neat!
They are curious, social, friendly, funny, and loveable!
The kids and I are both struggling with the idea of eating these turkeys because we have become somewhat attached.
but I don't remember much about them. However, I have totally decided that
turkeys are a wonderful addition to our little family farm and so we are going
to get a few heritage turkeys to hand raise next year to keep as breeders and
I may still get some Broad Breasted Whites, but we will be less hands-on with them when they are younger so that we do not get so attached. I have explained to the kids that we cannot keep these turkeys. Broad Breasted Whites will eventually get sick from growing too large, like Cornish Cross chickens do.
