Barnyard Fowl

Tonight I ran across some barnyard pictures from the late 1940’s while looking through some folders of family pictures.

Iowa Barnyard, 1940's, Turkey, FowlSince it is Thanksgiving week, I thought I would start with a turkey. This turkey is much too young for a Thanksgiving dinner, but it is probably early in the year when this picture was taken.

I was thinking about including some pictures of hogs in the post, but then I hit upon this fowl theme.

Are you ready for some turkey?
