Since it's November, our thoughts go to turkeys, so post your turkeys (live only) here!

Do they really have to be LIVE turkeys?

Well, being birds, they think the birdfeeder is for them!

But Equilibrium has a wonderful picture of a turkey in a bikini. Don't you want to see it?

I looked around to try to find someplace to cut and paste big words in color like what you use for effect but I couldn't find them. I wanted to type in big green letters for you to hunt and find the photo of the turkey in the bikini since you shunned me and my nekkid turkey photo into another thread. Nekkid turkeys in bikins DO have feelings you know. Hunt for it woman!!!! It's heeeeeeeeeeeeere... somewhere... where you'd least expect it tucked away waiting for YOU. While you're hunting... I have some substandard gobbler photos for you. Some parts of the photos are in focus... not all but some.

I didn't realize turkeys had bald heads. They do look a bit like buzzards.

Interesting fact...
When people first started domesticating turkeys, they breed them for interesting plumage. Then after a couple of hundred years, people realize feathers weren't that important and now we have the white, large breasted turkey.
