RE: turkeys


Rosalie,

No I don't raise turkeys, just find interesting tidbits of science and
nature intriguing. I took a class in college that explored many features of
evolution and the search for true altruism in the animal kingdom (not many
examples). Like you I have no problem eating anything I've raised. We used
to raise rabbits - for meat and always a few chickens around. Speaking of
squirrel, one of my favorite dishes as a youngster was squirrel dumplings.
My Mom could make up a batch that I can still taste.

Cliff, your answer about turkeys was most revealing! Thank you so much - I
like to learn about things other than just irises!  Do you raise turkeys?
Christie in CA said they could never eat those that walked in their garden.
I'm afraid I'm not THAT sentimental -- after all I ate the fried chidken my
grandmother's cook  fixed -- and as a child I fed those whenever I visited.
And I would sure like to have a chance to eat - or some way of disposing or
spiritiing away the squirrels that dig around or up my irises!  I'm not sure
I have ever seen wild turkeys - aren't they smaller, slimmer than the
domestic?   Do they co-habit - hybridize themselves?  Thanks again --
