The turkey who's momma hatched him and then died? Daddy has done all right by him.Couldn't catch 'em side by side, but he's bigger than his daddy now.

Thanks for the updated pic, I think he has grown up to be quite a handsome fella!

Stretch, I musta missed the original post about when he was little. But, it looks like he survived right good without a mama.

If you know anyone in Somerset named Williams, let them know about the following web-site.

My Brother in Law is into family geneology and that's where his grandparents lived.

Awww, Thanks for the update Stretch. I used to have a male and a female turkey when I still lived with my parents. What funny critters they were too. We'd chain up our German Shepard so they could scratch around in the yard and they both knew just exactly how close they could get to the dog and he couldn't reach them. That Tom would strut his stuff and the dog just going nuts trying to get to them. Then when we'd lock them back in their pen and turn the dog loose he'd go barking at them and they'd just go into their "house" and totally ignore him. The dog eventually got into their pen and in trying to protect the female the Tom got his top beak broke in half and it wasn't long after that he died also. These were our pets too and we couldn't bear to eat them so they were buried along the back fence with all the other critters we've ever lost : )

I know exactly what you mean. It's hard to bend over backwards to see something survive and then just eat it.
