Turkeys!!!

 

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so let's talk Turkey!

 

Wild turkeys are the largest game birds found in North America. They live in the woods and are covered with dark feathers so they are not seen easily.  Their feathers work as their camouflage!  Wild turkeys spend their days looking for food.  They eat acorns, seeds, small insects and wild berries. 

 

Did you know that they can fly?  President Benjamin Franklin wanted to make the wild turkey the National Bird of the United States - not the Bald Eagle! 

 

The female wild turkey can lay over a dozen tan and specked brown eggs.  After about a month, the chicks hatch and stay with their mom for about one year. 

 

Domestic turkeys are raised for food.  They descend from the wild turkey.  It is one of the most famous birds in North America!Americans like to eat turkeys for special occasions and holidays. Can you guess which ones they are?  Thanksgiving of course, as well as Christmas and Easter.
