It is a really good thing I love my farm fresh chicken and turkey because they are giving me a run for my money!!! The other day I accidentally moved a feed bag too fast and every last turkey freaked out and the end result was a few bruises for me!! Yes, their wing span has to be over 3 feet and I am only 5' 6" so it does not take much for them to take me out!! I love the turkeys because 99% of the time they are extremely cool and docile...imagine a turkey saying "hey man, what's up" and kind of just gliding by peacefully, but if you upset them watch out!! They are bronze turkeys so you may see some quill marks on the skin, but you won't care after you taste them!! We made one the other day for my daughter's birthday and it was during the week so I threw it in the oven coated with oil, stuffed with an apple, an onion and a bunch of dried thyme and rosemary, and seared at 500 for 15 minutes and cooked for another 2 hours at 300 degrees...yes, 2 hours and 15 minutes for an almost 14 lb. turkey...they cook fast! They are nice and fresh and lean and boy was it delicious and so easy for a weekday meal and we enjoyed it for a day or two...my family loves turkey!! So if you need a turkey or some chicken to get through the winter (we shut down in about 4 weeks for the season) just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Moonstruck signing out.
