So thanks to the Matron of Husbandry at Throwback at Trapper Creek for this one. (The Matron has lived on her 180 acre farm in the Pacific Northwest for all her life.)
It's a photo of "a future Thanksgiving turkey strutting his stuff!" writes the Matron.
"These are Broad Breasted White, a hybrid, but the most common turkey at Thanksgiving meals in the US. They are agressive grazers and a delight to raise, don't believe all the old stories about turkeys being dumb. These little guys really like to show off, and act like the big boys!"
