In these tough times, distract yourself by talking Turkey! This week, co-host Chipmunk the Chicken and special guest Lauren Bailey join the flock to gobble up some facts and stories about Wild Turkeys, the genetic ancestors to the domesticated Turkeys that are so prevalent today, with more than 200 million individuals raised each year in the United States alone. (By comparison, there are an estimated seven million Wild Turkeys in the entire WORLD!) Discover what these charismatic birds have in common with Peacocks. Hear an inspiring story about a Turkey named Matilda. All that and more on today’s episode of the Bird Show.
