My Life as a Turkey, a PBS documentary that originally aired November 16, 2011, chronicles Joe Hutto and his truly exceptional experience supporting a group of turkey hatchlings from the moment they were left on his porch by a local farmer until they reached adulthood.
During the season when millions of innocent birds are killed for consumption in holiday celebrations, this is a touching look at a gang of turkeys who were fortunate enough to have a much more loving life. Below is the trailer. The full documentary is viewable here where you may also purchase it on DVD.
