Friday Photo: Pet Turkey

Have you started preparing for a big Thanksgiving dinner? This boy looks like he'd rather not eat any turkey.

Montana Historical Society Photograph Archives, 950-354

The caption of this c. 1920-1924 Montana Department of Agriculture photo reads: "Two prize winners from the turkey country. The bird eats grasshoppers and the boys eat the birds. The new turkey industry ships a half-million dollars worth in addition to home consumption."

P.S. Remember these turkeys that collected gold in their gizzards?
