  1. My older relatives, who were farmers, claimed that domesticated turkeys are so dumb that during a rain storm of sufficent strength they risk drowning by throwing their heads back, mouths wide open, to see what’s going on.
    Sound pretty dodgy to me, but, then, who’s heard of a smart turkey?

A must read on this subject: Barbara Kingsolver’s new book, “Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life” which is about her family’s move to a farm in rural Appalachia and their quest to only eat food they produced or could source from within a 100 mile radius of their farm. Very interesting. Great turkey-raising stories!
