turkey eats

This looks like a stand of weeds to most people.

To us it looks like a meal for our turkeys. We know that when the pen arrives there the turkeys will eat every inch of this plant, including the roots. Their very favorite weed to eat is thistle...covered in large thorns that require gloves, long sleeves, head protection and possibly a shovel for one of us to pop it out of the ground. The turkeys grind it down to nothing.

They will have to be a little bigger to tackle this stand of weeds around a fruit tree, but they've proven it can be done.
