Luverly of the Week: Bourbon Red Turkey

Admittedly, I never had an appreciation for turkeys until I met the better half. He used to have turkeys when he was growing up, and filled me in on their appealing qualities.

I always thought the hens were cute, it was the toms that creeped me out with their over sized snoods and caruncles {see, even the names are creepy!}. But the lady turkeys seems to love them, so who am I to judge?

This particular tom is a Bourbon Red, which is a heritage breed that harks back to the late 1800's, and was created in Pennsylvania and Kentucky.

turkeys are not my idea of "luverly" in looks but are in taste!
