LET’S TALK Turkey

Add a touch of turkey to your backyard.
Raising a turkey or two is great for seasonal, small-scale production.
TIM BELYK/SHUTTERSTOCK

Most people think of “turkey” only in terms of a yearly holiday main course and little else. For many poultry enthusiasts, a turkey represents much more. A small turkey flock can add a true sense of awe and majesty to a backyard.

There’s such an air of elegance to a tom’s (male turkey’s) powerful strut with his head tucked in, suspended snood and tail feathers displayed in a proud fan. Of course, there is no holiday meal quite like the savory homegrown flavor of a bird you raised yourself from poult to pot.

The fine art of raising these famed birds has its differences and parallels with that of other farm birds. If you are conscious with their care and management, they assimilate nicely alongside other poultry endeavors. Able to suit a variety of lifestyles and end goals, turkeys are full of opportunity for fun, food and even a little profit.

The Orlopp Bronze turkey (hen shown right; tom shown on page 52) is a premium, broadbreasted hybrid.
