Tinsel Grown Up by Magweno Tinsel Grown Up by Magweno
Tinsels nearly fully grown. His chest tuft still has a way to go but his snood is nice and long now!



It's amazing when he really gets going, his head changes from white to royal blue to crimson in seconds, sometimes it kinda goes green or yellow, sometimes he has stripes... He's amazing.

With regards to my most recent journal: I don't care what the neighbours say about him, I couldn't eat him despite being originally bought as Christmas dinner!

If he was one of those aloof, antisocial birds (or just an out right jerk) I could see eating him. But he sounds really sweet and friendly.

As long as he's healthy and not one of those that are breed to more or less die of heart failure if not eaten (American mass market turkeys are breed that way), may he live long and healthy life.

Ah regrettably he turned on us and got really vicious so he's in the freezer now.

Ah. Well, it's a lot easier to kill and eat something if it's attacking you IMOP.

Turkeys have such amazing heads! They're so ugly but not really at the same time, if you know what I mean.

Yes I do! A little girl about 3 or 4 stopped at the garden fence today and looked so intently at Tinsel I ended up picking him up and taking him over to show her, I asked if she liked him and she said "yes but he's very ugly", which made me wonder what she liked about him if she thought he was ugly. He just has such a great personality!

Well, ugly things can be likable too. I mean, take a deer for example. If you look at all the seperate parts it's a weird animal, yet it's so lovable! And the same goes for turkeys! They're ugly, but not repulsive. :3

Oh gosh he's so ugly and I love him! <3 You're lucky. I wish I had a coop so I could keep game birds. It's one of the major downsides of living in the city... no room for outdoor pets. :c

My boyfriend and I thought seriously about living in a small house in the country that we found for rent at one point, but after about five minutes of me asking if I could have chickens/peacocks/quail/geese he decided we had better stay in the city. If I ever had room for a coop and a garden, I would never have money again. Ahaha

Oh but chickens peacocks quail and geese are the reason I EARN money! :D :D :D It used to be so I could make more but now it's so I can keep more pets and keep them happy. That's such a shame you decided not to do it, Mum keeps saying we need to move to a bigger plot so we can have more animals about. But I guess you have more important things than chickens on your mind right now...! ;) A baby is way cooler than chicks.

I used to be very much that way! I still keep my snakes, but yeah... the baby has forced me to keep things small for a while. ;)
Your mom is right! You could use an extra acre or two, by the sounds of it.

Haha! He is lovely. And so funny, today he tried some tea - didn't like it. He was eating ice all day as well because the water froze and had a great time, but then he started shivering because he must have had a chill in his crop. Stupid bird lol

Haha yea he does! Yes he's a bronze double-breasted (I think). If he keeps growing I might have to eat him because of it being cruel to keep him alive (like keeping a broiler alive past a year, they'd just chafe). But I don't know! We'll see how he goes.

Look at those eyes, that is just lovely. I know people can get very attached to turkeys. xD I've never been around one, but from what I'm told they can have very distinct personalities.

That's why I couldn't eat him, he follows me around like a dog and has really distinctive calls. Proud to say I can speak turkey..
