Today’s resolution: Talk turkey

8 Jun

Today, I’m headed out to Triple M Ranch at Traskwood to learn about raising heritage turkeys such as the one pictured here. It’s a Bronze, which the breeder says he loves because it’s a “strutter.” The turkey was caged for a livestock show/competition at the state fairgrounds but has a large area to roam back on the farm. It’s a glorious bird; this photo doesn’t do it justice.

The Bronze, a heritage poultry breed, is prized for its lustrous coat and propensity to strut its stuff. (2011 photo/RO)
