King Tut

I think what we have is a Narragansett heritage turkey, tom and 2 hens! I am excited as this breed is kind of rare. Bought them from an Amish farmer who couldn't remember what they were. I wanted a heritage turkey so that they will reproduce. LaVern named the tom, King Tut. Not sure why! They are all young turkeys but the tom was with several others and a BIG one had been ruling the roost. King Tut is now the "king" and he sure struts his stuff. We are free ranging them. Hopefully in the next couple weeks the hens will lay and sit on eggs. They fly up to the chicken house or milk house to roost at night. What a hoot! I'll have to try to get a video of this guy and try to post it here so you can hear him gobble.

Ohhh - I am jealous! I've always wanted turkeys - especially a heritage breed. Can I put dibs on a little one if the hens sit? :)
