Picture of the Day
Interesting about wild turkeys.
There are three types.....hens and chicks, Toms, and Jakes. A full grown Tom has a "beard" about 9". That is the hair that sticks out on their chest.
A Jake has a beard about 3-4".
The wild turkey population in Oregon depleted back in the early 1970's, so Rio Grand Turkeys (or as we call them Texas Wild Turkeys) were imported in 1975 and have thrived ever since.
Special birthday today, Dave Smail (LASD ret) and one of "our kids" is celebrating. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!!!!
