Turkey lady

This is one of eight turkeys at the sanctuary. She is from a turkey breeding facility. Her top beak was cut off but amazingly grew back, although it is incredibly flimsy and sometimes chips.

 

She has been de-toed, the first digits of her toes cut off.

 

These lovely turkey ladies love to trill, whistle and croon to people. They are really joyous animals.
