How cute! How he has grown but still so sweet. I guess you get your teacup back Kathy! Hope you enjoy the day.

p.s. yesterday at the craft store, they had oversized cups for kids to decorate - these things were big enough to pot a plant in. That's what Mr. Turkey needs!

Daisy said...

HA! I wonder if the chicken answered back. :)

Susie said...

I think he was more interested in the petunias!

I did a post around the comment you left me on Abe Lincoln Blogs. It is on my Pick a Peck of Pixels blog. I hope you don't mind.

A turkey has to maintain some dignity (what?) definitely growing up fast and teacup far too small - I was interested in the petunias also - what an unusual color!

Beth Niquette said...

I found you via Abe Lincoln's wonderful photo blog. I'm glad I came--this was a fun story and the pictures are delightful.

Dolores said...

Oh my, how he's grown; he's going through the 'not so cute' stage, but he does look dignified...

Leslie said...

I am glad that he is back even though he has probably seen his last teacup.

Mary said...

He's a growin'!

I agree with what Mildred said, he does still look sweet.

I saw a peacock the other day on the front porch of a house. I thought he was beautiful, and never realized how even those birds might want to be near people, or handled. Of course, just because he was on the porch doesn't mean he was friendly.

How sweet! I heard once that turkeys are hard to raise...........is that true? blessings,Kathleen

Sandra said...

I'm thinking the bum is a bit big this time around...?

Nancy M. said...

Gosh they are getting so big really quickly!

Mary said...

He's going through that long and lanky stage. They are not the handsomest of God's creatures. You have a very large heart. Hugs and blessings...Mary

Mildred,I was actually thinking about getting one of those giant tea cups for the next pictures!Are you reading my mind?

Daisy, the chicken is just a dumb cluck, that is why she is stuck holding down the porch tablecloth.

Susie, yes, way more interested in flowers than a tea cup he can't fit into, who's silly idea is that?

Abraham Lincoln ( I love your name and was surprised it really IS your name)I am flattered, really.

Amy, they are, but if they were not Midget Whites they would barely for on the table by now.

LindaSue, these turkeys are the most docile and quiet turkeys I have ever raised. I am becoming very attached to them, so much so I ordered 15 more to raise. ( am I insane?)The petunias are pretty aren't they, and the photo portrays their true color.

Beth, thank-you.I have read Abraham Lincoln's blog off and on and always come away glad I had visited.

Dolores, the turkeys are a bit gawky, and they remind me of awkward , tall, teenage boys right now. Even their voices do, they are kind of between the chirps of poults and trying to be a bit more grow-up sounding like real turkeys.

Leslie, if I get one of those giant tea cups Mildred mentioned , maybe not! But my precious Blue Willow is to special for the turkeys to play around anymore.

Mary, the peacock probably was friendly. Most of the peacocks hanging around homes here seem to have been naturalized, but still hang out by homes accepting hand-outs. Making nuisances of themselves and leaving messes on porches. I love peacocks though and if my husband or brother-in-law next door did not have such practical objections ( what's with this being practical business anyway?)I would have a few myself.

Kathleen, they are not hard to raise and are very quick to grow to slaughter size ( sorry, but that is why turkeys are raised folks). Turkeys also provide one of the best and efficient feed to meat ratio per pound and dollar.Pork is the other. Turkeys are also not as stupid as rumored, just take a gander at any hunting channel as the hunters are stalking turkeys.My little Midget Whites are mostly destined for breeding so I can pursue a constant supply through the years of home raised turkey for the freezer. A few Toms will be gracing our table as DINNER though.

Sandra, you're right. Plus , sitting in the teacup is becoming dangerous to my tea cup.

Nancy M. I think you all would do well at giving turkey raising a try at your place. You already do so well with chickens.

Mary, yes, he is gawky. Actually, I think this turkey is a she, but time will tell. I bought the ingredients for your asparagus soup today, cannot wait to make it and EAT it!

Farm Chick Paula said...

Too funny, Kathy! I think the little turkeys have finally outgrown the teacups! *giggle*

Leedra said...

Is that your turkey growing up some? I can't even decide if that is real or not.
