    Wow, he is old and still looking good. How long do turkeys live anyway? You must be taking good care of him. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Per Wikipedia, the average lifespan of a domesticated turkey is 10 years. He no longer can fly and roost, and the geese beat him up so now he is living in the pheasant/peafowl pen. He seems to be doing OK in there- he has shelter, space, and all the food he can eat.

    What a beautiful bird! I love turkeys. I didn’t know they got that old.

    Thanks Becky. He is pretty and seems to know it. His feathers really turned bronze in the sun ( which we do not have this time of year). We will see what his lifespan is.
