Loving Turkeys at Christmas – 4 Photos from Friends

Turkeys roosting in a tree

We’ve received some wonderful pictures of chickens and turkeys from our good friends and theirs throughout the year. Here are four that were sent to us this month of December that we’re delighted to share with you this holiday week. The spirit and sensibility of turkeys is the same whether they be “wild” or “domestic.”
