November 23, 2021 (Alpine) – Did you know that not all turkeys are brown? Richard Edwords of Alpine sent this shot of his white “royal palm” and gray “blue slate” turkeys, both heritage breeds.
Fortunately for these birds, they won’t wind up on the Thanksgiving table. Edwords says, “They are therapy turkeys. We take them to the senior care facilities. I own them and I sell the babies in the spring.”
