The turkey has landed

White Oak Farm’s newest addition is a yearling Bourbon Red tom. We picked him up today and he did manage to turn a few heads in town when he gobbled from the back of our pickup truck. The instant he was let loose in the pen, his face turned a rich blue and his waddles became bright red, and he’s been displaying for our three Narragansett/Royal Palm cross hens ever since. Gone are the days when the girls can free range the farm at will, they’ve been fenced in so that they can spend some quality time with the new stud and to prevent them from hiding their nests. We’re hoping this little flock will provide us with Turkeys to sell come next Fall.
