There's a guy who raises heritage turkeys near us in Soccorro. We're getting one next year... that is if Slim can't get close enough to a wild onw with his old Model 12.
A) they're smaller (though a LOT more delicious) than store-bought turkeys, so the more the merrier
2) BUMP Model 12 !!!!!
Then Slim needs to spend some time on my farm.
When I moved to this farm various kinds of poultry were the first things I moved in after the family. I began noticing that my birds were apparently consuming far too much too fast and the problem only worsened as time went on. I couldnt figure out where all the feed was going. Then a neighbor stopped by and during our conversation he said,"So, what do you think of all those turkeys?" and he then goes on to explain that he counted 21 wild turkeys coming out of my barn one day. It wasnt long after that that I began seeing them. The damned things arent afraid of me any more and hang out behind my barn. One day I counted 68 individuals (I didnt count those that were in unidentifiable clumps of bird/weeds) just watching me doing my chores and I presume waiting for feeding time.
