Thanksgiving is just around the corner here in Beckley. That means families can enjoy a hearty feast of everyone’s feathered friend: the turkey. However, there may be some things you didn’t quite know about this big old bird. Here is a list of 5 surprising facts about turkeys.

  1. Benjamin Franklin never voted for the turkey to be the national bird. He merely stated that it was a more majestic bird than the Bald Eagle. America disagreed.
  2. Male turkeys have a stretch of flesh over their beak, which is called a snood. Females lack this snood over their beak.
  3. In order to attract a mate, male turkeys will spread their wings and puff out their chest, similarly to a peacock.
  4. Wild turkeys are able to reach speeds of up to 55 mph when they fly through the air.
