No. Should I want to chew on something akin to a bit of an old mattress, I'll go and stand in any gateway within ten miles of Yarmouth and wate for someone to dump one.

Home raised birds of some of the more traditional breeds are very worthy.

But we don't see them often in this country.

Yes but only my own,a lot of turkey you can buy in the shops tastes like cardboard. :thumbdown:

We always try and save one or two of the christmas ones,in the freezer,for through the year. :chef:

And no,they don't taste like cardboard after being frozen,taste the same as when fresh. :thumright:

My son hunts wild turkey, some of the best game meat I've had. Much smaller, much more flavorful but can be tough if old and cooked too long.

I quite like a Kentucky straight bourbon as well but have never had to hunt one.

Reckon we have turkey about once a week on average. They along with chickens and pigs are in most country folks back gardens. They is better than chicken generally have turkey as Schnitzel

Never have it for Christmas.
