The bonded turkeys came from a meat farm but the efforts of a concerned neighbor spared them from slaughter. They arrived at CAS last winter and quickly joined our free-ranging, underfoot family. Tomas enjoys strutting around with his gorgeous feathers

I support a local animal sanctuary which had, among a wide range of 'unusual' animals that people thought might make good pets, a couple of turkeys. Before this I had never seen a living turkey. I was surprised how friendly they are. Turkey is off my table this Christmas!

My Life as a Turkey - Full Episode 53min.

After a local farmer left a bowl of eggs on Joe Hutto’s front porch, his life was forever changed. Hutto, possessing a broad background in the natural sciences and an interest in imprinting young animals, incubated the eggs and waited for them to hatch. As the chicks emerged from their shells, they locked eyes with an unusual but dedicated mother. One man’s remarkable experience of raising a group of wild turkey hatchlings to adulthood.

I'm happy for them, but sad for all the millions of Turkeys that are killed everyday.

Szkoda, że nie wszystkie indyki mają tyle szczęścia;
