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
