Franklin in vogue.

Franklin, my Bourbon Red Turkey tom, strikes a pose. He is such a funny character.

I need some hens. I forgot about those entertaining dust baths!

Franklin is one handsome fellow! We are hoping to get turkeys this year - not sure what type. So many to choose from :)
Your whole gang looks happy and content.

The dirt's flyin' here too. Ooh la la! It's a good thing I'm not a hen turkey. I'd be all over that Franklin like white on rice.

Fabulous pictures! I love Franklin pictures, he is so handsome and interesting! How much does he weigh, he looks huge in the pictures!

Beautiful pictures, Joanna!
Dust baths and tail feathers...just beautiful!

Nice pictures! You always take such great photos.

We had a big dinner party here last night where this guy came out and cooked for us. My one responsibility was to provide eggs, so I provided three beautiful Americauna eggs from you. Everyone LOVED them! They were delicious, as usual, and they caused lots of great conversation. Thanks again...

Franklin is absolutely amazing. I'll probably cry the next time I see a whole roasted turkey! You're not going to do that to him, are you? Please?

I love seeing these! Gives me a glimpse into what some of my girls will look like! So far, our Americanas/Arucaunas are similiar. I also have a blonde one too. :)

I know I continually repeat myself, but...

Gorgeous photography, Joanna. You can make a turkey, a few chickens and a bunch of goats look better than any Picasso. You truly have a gift.

I love your animals and I love you. Keep the pictures coming girl.

Your "gang" looks so healthy and happy. I know Franklin's the star of the show, but Early's still my fave--look at them cute little curly tail feathers! And such elegant posture.

Thanks for the chicken fix!

Franklin looks like a friendly boy! I wish I could say that about my Narragansett tom....he really likes going after me! I'm jealous of your dust....all we have is LOTS of mud! :)

Frank will have to come visit Fred. Fred is upset right now cause Tessa is sitting on eggs and not paying attention to him
