Leilani Farm Sanctuary has three adorable new turkeys, saved from human consumption. The pullets (baby turkeys) have decided that Obi, our blind rooster, is their mom! Each night, the rooster spreads his wings and keeps the young turkeys warm.

Birds are programmed before birth to care for young. Nobody teaches them...they're born with a "pre-programmed memory chip!"
