Turkeys

I've been up to the turkey farm today, and I havent seen them since they were a few days old, and the change is (obviously) massive.

The different breeds have now been more obvious apart from the colour, because they are still different colours, and they are different sizes now.
The males have a bigger wattle under their chins, and they are generally bigger birds.
They are all free-range turkeys - they are let out in the morning and put themselves to bed and then locked up at night, so that they are safe from foxes.
