Nice old bird

Meet my friend’s new pet turkey. I won’t tell you her name, because they have as a family, like, six or eight different names they call her.

She turned up at a nearby biker cafe. She was very friendly and the bikers fed her french fries all day. She’s had a wing clipped, so she was definitely domestic and probably a pet.

How she came to my friend, I didn’t catch, but she really was a sweetie. Best friends with the remaining chicken (they have a fox problem). Definitely not destined for the pot.

She made funny keening noises, not at all like gobbles. And graciously accepted hugs (not from me. I can’t imagine hugging a turkey).

I didn’t tell them what we’re having for Easter supper.
