While hundreds of turkeys were prepared for the festivities in Superior homes, Ma and Pa Turkey owned by the Slettens were spared the ax. They are being kept to raise a family. Oren Sletten, co-owner of the miniature turkey farm, has made such pets of the birds he said that he wouldn’t kill them to eat if he never tasted turkey again.

In raising the birds the Slettens had a few interesting experiences.

The turkeys were obtained when they were about five days old. Mr. Sletten kept them in the house. This was only possible because his wife was in the hospital at the time. When she came home and saw what was taking place, she said good humorously, the turkeys went out into the yard. That wasn’t all.

After having puttied several storm windows one day in the back yard, Mr. Sletten went into the house for a while and when he came back out again to the windows the putty had been all pecked off by the two gobblers.
