Royal Palm



Here is his baby picture-

Below was taken early last month, while locked up during hunting season. The turkeys got a reprieve during the holidays when first my large cooler went down. Then after that was repaired, the refrigerator decided it was it's turn to quit working.

Think this dude may just become part of the farm, have enjoyed his strutting and following me around. Still planning on getting those two Black Spanish turkeys, you can see in the beginning of the video, ready for the table soon. Have enjoyed raising both of these breeds, they are calm and get along great with the chickens.

Neat video, I watched it several times. What a beautiful turkey!

Thanks, surprised me how much I have enjoyed him. But he does like to swish around to show himself.

I love the video, and that turkey, wow. Great site and I'm adding you to my fav blogs. Just wondering how much do you get for your milk?? So you sell by the quart or gallon. I hope to have extra soon.

Thanks for visiting and adding my blog! I sell my milk for $5 a gallon, fresh or frozen. I purchase both gallon & half gallon new milk jugs from a milk packer in Jeff City. There are some that live closer to St. Louis, KC, or Springfield charging anywhere from $8-$12 a gallon.

Hi, I hope you don't mind but I wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Lemonade Stand Award, you can read about it on my blog. When I read that the basis of this award was on gratitude and attitude you were one of the first ones I thought of, your positive attitude comes through your blog every time I read it and besides I just love your blog!
