WHITE TURKEYS
« on: June 08, 2009, 12:09:24 AM »
Last Nov. I posted some pictures of some white turkeys that I have on my place. There are about eight of them and I thought they were all hens. Well, this past week I checked the cameras and found out that at least one of them isn't a hen. Man, I sure hope he's around next spring  -0078 cause we don't have a fall season He'll sure make a great mount. The picture from last year is the one I posted showing a group of white ones and the picture from this year shows a white jake.

Nice looking Jake, sure would look nice as a mount. With on fall season there it will give him time to grow. Thanks for the pictures.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but that's a growing phase they're going thru. See it all the time here in LA.....
Would be super if one did stay that way for a mount for sure!
