Christmas Dinners "On The Hoof". Perhaps these turkeys would be even more elusive if they realised that quite a few of their number will be gracing dinner tables at Christmas in a few weeks. They are not worrying about the approaching festive season now, and the unfortunate ones certainly will not be worrying about anything afterwards. They have been bred more or less as a hobby by Mr. P.L. Barker, of Blenheim, whose son, Gilbert, is seen rounding them up.
