Happy Thanksgiving!

Recommended Posts

Woke up this morning and found these two birds had just been delivered all the way from Cagayan de Oro. They look a bit scrawny and lethargic after the very long bus and boat rides. But I got a month or so to fatten' 'em up. But they're a breeding pair so maybe just keep them and wait for 2019. We'll see.

Suggestions for names always appreciated!

Okay, they're scrawny and noisy as shit. Look more like vultures than turkeys. Wanna kill them but not really eat 'em.

Yeah all the free-range poultry and fowl here drop eggs and the monitor and sailfin lizards eat 'em right up.

This plan ain't working out quite as planned. I'm going to Broden's come late November. Nuthin' is easy in d'Phils, lol.

I'll bring a pie or something Bro.

So here's a thought...in the US there is a company that sells TurDuckEns! It's a chicken stuffed duck stuffed in a turkey. @BossHog if you wrapped a chicken in boneless pork belly, (skin on), and stuffed it in the turkey...phew!!! that's a mouthful in more ways than one! the pork would keep the turkey and the chicken moist. Just have a local lechon guy roll it on a spit and baste for a few hours.

Well those two turkeys survived the holiday season, are not so scrawny  The tom in particular is starting to look like an actual turkey and not a vulture. Still noisy though.

Our turkeys who received a Thanksgiving pardon back in November have laid dozens of eggs around the banana trees and the first ones are starting to hatch. Here's a day old poult....

Technically birds are descendants of reptiles..
