Heritage Breed Turkey

We have tried for a year and a half  to breed our heritage breed Royal Palm turkeys, with no luck.  We tried both the incubator the last two summers and letting our 3 hens just sit on the eggs, but nothing seemed to produce any results.  We made the decision a couple of weeks ago that this probably was  going to be the last summer and the turkeys would find a place on our Thanksgiving and Christmas table this year!

Imagine my surprise tonight when I was working out in the yard and glanced in to check on the turkeys and there was a teeny-tiny new one running around in the coop!

Mama is extremely protective and chased after me when I went in to check him out.

We may need to re-think our dinner plans for the holidays!
