One Special Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Here’s a story about a very special turkey…

“The Thanksgiving turkey¬†officially pardoned¬†by President Obama on Wednesday morning isn’t your run-of- the-mill bird. It’s actually been bred specifically for the purpose.”

“They were talking to them, they were playing music, they were making noise, they had some flash bulbs, bright lights. Just to help prepare them, get them ready for the ceremony that’s going to happen tomorrow at the White House.”

“The turkey and its alternate, said Olson, are the “cream of the crop” chosen for their attractive feathering, muscling, red and blue head coloring and a healthy fanning of feathers when they strut.”
