Once again, this year for Thanksgiving I adopted a turkey from Farm Sanctuary. This time, I chose Cicada, a lovely bird with a pale pink neck. I'm so glad she gets to enjoy Thanksgiving with her friends at the Sanctuary, and not on someone's dinner plate. That would really suck.
Go ahead and adopt your own turkey from Farm Sanctuary. But don't worry; when they say "Your request is being processed, and your materials will be shipped within 2 weeks" they don't really mean that.
So don't plan on building a little turkey pen outside, or worry about how to keep your turkey safe from foxes. Or wonder how to tell your husband you're expecting a turkey. Or get the dog excited about her new playmate. And don't invest in a little leash and collar for your turkey either.
Because all you get is a card with a pretty photo of your turkey. It won't follow you around, like Mary's little lamb, but you can be sure your turkey is enjoying life in California.
