look's

From his look's and the time of year are these pet's or maybe kept for future breeding,not the most attractive of chap's.I used to have Turkey's as a child but they went for the chop at Christmas I can always remember the noise they made when you went to feed them,have never eaten them since.

They were at a Farm Shop

They were at a Farm Shop where they have various farm animals - pigs, goats, chickens etc - as an attraction for the children. So I suppose they are working birds in a way, and if ever there was a shortage of turkey meat one or two may mysteriously disappear from the field at least, if not the chiller cabinet. They certainly don't look pretty close up!
