<p>I don't know what she pays, but I do know that my sister pays a lot more for a Thanksgiving turkey that is fresh and butchered locally.  She is very allergic to some of the preservatives or whatever Butterball and other companies put on their turkeys during the processing, so she is very willing to pay the extra bucks.</p>

<p> People pay extra for  farm raised  birds  here  .. but not THAT much. One family here has a  57 pound turkey for  last year's  Thanksgiving ! They  had to cut it in half to cook it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>   WE have herds * ( flocks!) of  wild turkeys around town... those would certaily  qualify as  free range! ... hmmmm... Thinking of a new way to make up for that pay cut I took this year <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title=""></p>

<p>I hope we have a flock of turkeys at the new duckgeek ranch (moving this week sometime).  I'm going to need to go pick up a bow so that I can harvest some critters out there. I haven't hunted since 1983.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We have a flock here in our neighborhood in the city that has been growing and is north of 15 birds now.  We had a lost baby turkey in our backyard a few weeks ago and DW wanted to try to keep it and raise it with her chickens, but I really didn't think that was a very good idea! </p>

<p>I'm afraid before I pay $60.00 for a turkey my household will be having hamburgers or hotdogs for Thanksgiving. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title="">    I think I've had Butterball turkeys the last 10 years and they've been fine so far.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Perhaps if the turkey would clean, baste and cook itself as well as  furnish its own cornbread stuffing and clean up afterwards I might consider $60.00.</p>

   Most supermarkets offer a  " dunner deal" with turkey and fixin's = price of course is dependent on the number of servings.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> I found out that the best way to get out of making Thanksgiving dinner is a  Turkey Trot!  I don't run any more but DS likes to go to a race in the morning -- I always say to DH - "You know, YOU make the BEST BBQ/Turkey !   Why don't you cook the bird this year? "</p>
<p> </p>
<p> He does.. and clean up is SO much easier !</p>
