Good Things Come In Threes on Thanksgiving

While we wait for the Turkey to thaw the last little bit… here are three things about Turkeys you should know.

There are three towns named Turkey in the US:

  • Turkey, Texas
  • Turkey Creek, Louisiana
  • Turkey, North Carolina

and I had to cheat to get three.

There are only three English words that rhyme with Turkey:

  • Jerky
  • Murky
  • Perky

There are three colorful names for official breeds of Turkey:

  • Black Spanish
  • Bourbon Red
  • Blue Slate

Turkeys have traits humans need to adopt:

  • They have no ears, but hear very well
  • Old males are preferable to young toms
  • Old hens are tougher birds
