Poultry Ambassador

Far and away the best entry in the Schaghticoke Fair Poultry Show was Barty.  My baby.  (With a face only a mother could love.)  He got more visits and photo shoots and oohs and aahhs than just about any other bird in the barn.

Why?  Because most people coming through had never really seen a turkey up close.  They know more about the white plastic wrapped Butterball in the grocer's freezer than this fellow.  (sigh)

Fingers crossed, he will be back again next year.  We'll be watching for you!

I was very happy that I was able to see, first hand, Barty spreading the love in the poultry barn. I think he is adorable.

I'm sure Barty is a very handsome turkey. And has a nice personality. I've just never learned to . . . um, ah, well . . . appreciate a turkey's facial features.

Ok that eye scared me for a second.
