We are officially out of the turkey business. It wasn’t exactly our choice, but it is now our decision. I would love to blame it all on the huge raccoon that has been hitting the chicken houses up and down the valley, but the turkeys (and our husbandry skills) ought to shoulder some of the blame.
It was an easy decision in the end. A turkey business actually requires living turkey and all we had left in the end were two toms, not much good for anything other than showing off and keeping the goose company.
