Living on a farm is like living close to nature. Generally the farm has lots of chickens, ducks and turkeys. Thereíre lots of farm animals, such as the horse, cow, pigs and sometimes a mule. The mule is used for plowing the farmland to prepare it for planting. This means that vegetables are part of the farm also. The one thing that caught my attention, was the turkey, and how proud it appeared to be. Its walk is so graceful, until it appears that the turkey is doing a proud strut. The turkey parades around the yard just as proud as any fowl on the farm.105

He has no special place to go, just wanders to and fro. His strut is so perfect until it seems that heís been in training to perform for us. His moves are as smooth and unflawed as any model on the best runway. The turkey strut is so amazing, until it changes right before your eyes. Thereíre times it seems that the turkey is doing a dance as he glide around the yard. He mingles with the other fowls in the yard, but yet some how he seems to stand out more than any other fowl. 96

His appearance is so beautiful, with the many colored feathers on it, and the beautiful fan-shaped tail. Next to the peacock, this is one of the most beautiful fowls to me. The turkey is so wonderful to watch. With his huge body, and tiny legs, he appears to be deformed, but this is the way he was made to look. Looking at his tiny legs, you wonder how can they support his huge body. During the time the turkey stretches, his tail expands into a beautiful rainbow of colors. 90

The turkey strut is so noticeable, itís as if he hears music and is performing for us. His strut is very dominating and he appears very controlling over the other fowls. His size alone gives him the edge over the others. His gobbling sound can be heard clear and is very distinctive over the chickens, ducks and geese. His rotunda body and tiny legs, looks like a basketball with two tooth-picks stuck in it. When you have the opportunity to visit a farm, pay close attention to the turkey, and watch how he moves around. He can be used for a learning tool, for colors, with his multi-color feathers. Yes, thereís a male and a female turkey, but Iím not able to determine the difference in them. 129
