is Lucky, and she is a very special turkey! I raise flocks of turkeys
every year, as I am a poultry farmer, and most turkeys really do not care
for people at all. Not her! From the very beginning, she set herself apart
from the flock with her personality. Sure the rest of the birds would
greet me at feeding time, but as soon as the food was on the ground, I did
not matter! But Lucky always greets me, whether or not it is feeding time.
She follows me around, talking to me in her own turkey dialect, and as you
can see is even cooperative enough to wear hats and signs. She hangs
around the barnyard with her other poultry friends when I'm busy
elsewhere. She like being petted, and is even trustworthy around children,
which is never the case with other turkeys.
Because of her distinct sweet friendly personality, she did not end up on
anyone's Thanksgiving table. She was spared that harvest time, and has
been every one since. She is not just a turkey, she is a real pet, and a
good friend. She even models signs for our radio show, too! This will be
her fourth Thanksgiving with us, and we look forward to many more
