Can Turkeys Fly?
I am still surprised at the internet stories that explain with authority that turkeys cannot fly-- Could the internet be wrong?

I suppose that some web writers or bloggers write about turkeys without ever having seen a bird except internet videos or simply repeat information that is already disseminated.

However Heritage Turkeys, like their wild ancestors are excellent fliers when the situation demands it.
