    Cover the breast with strips of bacon. Wrap ends of the legs in foil, cook at a slightly lower heat than commercially fattened ones. Add a touch more sage to the sausage dressing to counteract the wild taste....
    Always (at least in the CA hills) check the gizzard for gold nuggets, turkeys and geese have been known to find them.

    I am so glad I wasn't the only one picturing little gravy boats dispersed throughout that grouping!!

    Hold on a minute while I get the sauerkraut!! Hubby wanted to get a couple domestic baby turkeys this spring so we could raise them. After thinking about it I realized no way could I raise those little things and then have them for dinner. I'll buy my turkey in the supermarket, less personal that way!! Sure sign that season is getting ready to change.

    Aren't they something else? There are a lot of them around here and I keep an eye out to watch them. I call all the hens "Haggies", they just look like old hag ladies with their widow's weeds dragging around them. When the big gobbler shows up, now there is a display. Early in the spring, he escorted a young tom off his territory and it was about a half hour scenario, watching him move the younger along, then stop and display, gobble and start all over again. Between the turkeys and the deer, I am never too bored here.

    Thanksgiving dinner on the "hoof"! I love to watch turkeys. But, don't get a lot of them around here. Actually, the only turkeys we see around here are in the grocery store. The neighbors down the road, do keep about 10 of them. Great shot.

    I will never understand why Benjamin Franklin wanted to make the turkey the official bird of the United States... Sorry, but there's nothing cute about them - they're just ugly, dorky birds. I'm glad we went with the eagle.....just saying...

    Oh, I love the turkeys. I've had them come to the kitchen window and look in as if to say..."well, are you coming out to feed me?" I've also had some that come to the door and peck on the sliding glass door.....
    Great picture.

    Hey Cathy. Noticed where you are from. I'm in Parke County near Bridgeton. My brother lives in Williamsport, just down the highway from you. I've never seen your location on the board before. Just thought I's say hello from a fellow Hoosier from this part of the state. We should plan a meet and greet for members in this part of the state.

    This is crazy, it is the same thing I saw in my back yard, 2 mornings in a row. This last spring, we had 3 hens with chicks wondering around our back yard.

    We get herds of wild turkeys on our property! They like to eat the cat food we leave out for our outside cat. They're having babies now and the baby turkeys are really cute.
