There are many breeds of turkeys. This is the Bourbon Red Turkey.

A veterinarian in South Carolina has decided to raise heritage turkeys and this is her story.

...Her most (click here) recent project is the conservation of the Beltsville Small White Turkey.
"I'm out to prove that these breeds are valuable and we should hang on to them," she said. "To save them, we have to eat them."
True to its name, the Beltsville is a slender, snow-white bird that made it ideal for a clean dressing at Thanksgiving dinner. Popular in the 1940s and 1950s, the Beltsville was the nation's first turkey bred by the USDA specifically for Thanksgiving dinners because it was small enough to fit in small, apartment-sized ovens and refrigerators....
Being it is Thanksgiving I wanted to make a prayer for the Republicans in the USA.
Dear God,
I am thankful for all the wonderful time I have had on this green Earth and I want it to be longer. I am thankful for my family and the continued health of my mother. This year has been interesting, but, I need to ask a special favor. So, as long as I've got your attention I want to make this prayer for USA Republicans.
Please God, teach them to value human life. Let them put away their wars and hate and find peace and salvation in enjoying the simple pleasures of life, like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran's Benefits, The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and most of all S.N.A.P. benefits so many Americans are purchasing their Thanksgiving meal with that help. 
Please God, teach USA Republicans the value of education and what it means to have a brain trust for the country. Help them to be enlightened to the benefit of unions that insure a strong Middle Class for the USA which makes Wall Street smile when Americans spend their money. 
I ask God for the very reason I am thankful for my country. The Republicans need to find you God because I am very worried if they won't find God soon in their lives; President Obama will teach them what appreciating the value of human life is with his veto pen.
Say hello to all the saints, Mary and Jesus, too.
Until next time God,
Your faithful servant
