Rare Heritage Livestock Turkey Original Painting "Miss Pecky"

Meet "Miss Pecky". This is one of several of my paintings that have been juried into 'The Peaceable Kingdom: Animals, Real and Imagined' art show at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA. This show is in the San Francisco bay area, if you are in CA. The show will run from March 3 - May 19, 2013. Miss Pecky is one of our pet heritage turkeys that we raised from fertile eggs. We hatched them in an incubator and have kept them as pets since. She is a hen turkey of a type known as the "Mottled Black". Pecky was named because of her habit of pecking at anything shiny or interesting, and has never grown out of this. She is over 5 years old, which is getting up there in turkey years!
