"Pavo," a heritage turkey, displays his feathers in a pen at the Barkwell Farm on Wednesday morning, November 22, 2012 in Milton-Freewater, OR as farm owner Steve Barkwell looks on after feeding his birds. Barkwell and his wife keep the two turkeys, 30 chickens and 3 ducks in a pen together on their farm. The turkey "figured out how to survive Thanksgiving by sitting on the eggs," Barkwell said, describing how the bird would sit on eggs from the hens until they were collected.
