Well, I suppose his old sparring buddy is indeed "on the other side," so to speak! If there's an "other side" for turkeys!The two females were put in the freezer about two months ago because they were getting after my chickens causing them to quit laying eggs. The big tom left us about a month ago and is going in the smoker in the morning, all 37 pounds.
The last one has been pardoned until at least Christmas. He is lonely for his friends and likes to peck on the door windows because he thinks it's his old sparring buddy on the other side.
