Feeding a Crowd - Today is the day following that big "Turkey Day," the day of the Thanksgiving Feast. Let me tell you how we managed to fill everyone up to their satisfaction - including the four little ones who had to have what they wanted of the big roast turkey bird. All four of them wanted to have a turkey leg - a drumstick as some like to call them. One turkey - four turkey legs. It meant an extra long automobile trip down the highway to Maxie's Turkey Farm. but I guess that it was worth the extra effort to go there for the turkey. Maxie, you see, is a turkey breeder of rare skill. He actually has lots of 4-legged birds on hand and sells them at a fair price. It must be that Turkey Breeder Maxie has lots of grandkids. Would you believe that he does? I'm a believer. * * * * * * * * * * A Maxie Turkey (Pixabay.com) - Composite by Gus Kilthau * * * * * * * * * *

That would be a bit tricky - coming up with four drumsticks.

@JudyEv - Ms Judy - The real trick was in paying for the bird. - Gus-

We had a one leg turkey one time. lol The four of them would not have been happy about that.

@Happy2BeMe - Friend L_B - You are so correct. Question - Did that One-Legger bird use a crutch to get around (or what)? -Gus-

@Ceerios I am thinking he must had to because hobbling around on one leg when you're a turkey probably wouldn't work so good.

@Happy2BeMe - Friend L-B - That makes good sense. Probably way too fat to fly (fRy), right? -Gus

@rebelann - Oh my word... Only 4 legs were required. Your leg would have been the 5th. -Gus-

You made me laugh, because my MiL told me that when he was a kid, my husband asked if there was the possibility to create a breed of chickens with 6 legs.

@LadyDuck - Ms Anna - 6 turkey legs on a single turkey? I will have to ask breeder, Maxie, about the possibilities of such a thing. MiLs can often spill tales, can't they? AND - turkeys can grow stuff that we humans often cannot predict for them. - Gus-

@LadyDuck - Ms Anna - People usually do not get to choose their MiLs or their FiLs, but both you and I made wise (and lucky) choices, didn't we? - Gus-
