Here is a picture of some of our turkeys that we raised. They are absolute food hogs and gobble up the feed as soon as you put it in the bowl!

 They look twice as big when they display their feathers like that.

We waited too long to butcher them and they got really big.  The last boy was over 40 lbs when he was dressed.  He wouldn't even fit in my scalding pot!

 Here is turkey sausage all wrapped up and ready for the freezer.
 And here are 24 pints of canned turkey.  Great for turkey salad sandwiches!


  1. Yum! Congrats! I have a sister who lives on the other side of town who got into Turkeys and she is also enjoying canned, ground, and frozen products from her excess boys. We don't have Turkeys yet but we got ourselves some pigs finally :)

  2. Ah, I think you have tried everything but pigs! Yum, I love pork too! Turkeys are a great source of meat. We butchered 6 broad breasted turkeys and got 173 lbs of meat! How are you birds doing? Are your tolbunts doing well?
