Turkey Facts for Kids

Turkeys take center stage at Thanksgiving day feasts, where the conversation is usually about how the bird was prepared for the meal. If you want to teach you children more about what they are eating, here are some pretty interesting tidbits about what life is like for turkeys who avoid the oven.

  • Wild turkeys spend the day on land, but fly up into the trees to sleep. This is the only way they can stay safe from predators at night.
  • Turkeys' heads change colors based on their emotional state. They can turn red, blue or white depending on how calm or excited they feel.
  • Only male turkeys gobble, which is their mating sound. Other turkey noises include yelps, kee-kees and purrs.
  • Turkeys have remarkable vision. They can see three times better than humans and their eyesight spans 270 degrees. 
  • Approximately 50 million turkeys are consumed each year on Thanksgiving.
