“Coexistence: what the farmer does with the turkey – until Thanksgiving” Mike Connolly

Are you aware of the tale of two poops?

A turkeys gender can be determined by its droppings. Males produce J shaped poops and females poop is Spiral shaped.

Other facts

  • Baby turkeys are called poults
  • The turkey is named after the country ‘Turkey’ but still, some confusion exists.
  • Only Male turkeys ‘gobble’
  • Turkeys eat stones for digestion
  • They roost in trees
  • Only two birds have prominent snoods, Wild turkey and ocellated turkey. (The snood is an erectile fleshy protuberance on the forehead of turkeys and can extend beyond the tip of the beak)
  • An adult turkey has 5000-6000 feathers
  • Turkeys can attack humans. Be warned they are not as gentle as you think

What is the feather in our life?

    First of all, a very handsome turkey featured here! Secondly, I love all these facts about turkeys. Seems no matter where I’ve lived, wild turkeys strut their stuff in every neighborhood. Hopefully they’ll be smart enough to lay low until Thanksgiving in the US is over 😉
