“Remarkable bird, id’nit, squire? Lovely plumage!” Young turkeys don’t gobble, they trill. It’s a sweet sound, that makes them seem slightly less buzzard-like. Which is a good thing, because let’s face it, turkeys and Muscovy ducks are the avian equivalents of Quasimodo. Our turkeys are Bourbon Reds. This is a heritage breed, and I believe they are ‘less unattractive’ than their hybrid counterparts. My husband likes the coloring on their feathers. I, however, agree with John Cleese, who famously said, “Plumage don’t enter into it”! Turkey faces look like buzzard faces!
