Turkey Tales and Tails

Did you know that a turkey is a type of pheasant? It is the only poultry native to our western hemisphere.

Male turkeys gobble. Females make a clicking sound, my wife says they sound like aliens.

The wrinkly fleshy part of a male turkey's beak is called a snood. The flap under the chin is a wattle

Our last 2 turkeys enjoy a day of freedom near the donkey field before Thanksgiving last year....
