I always wanted to write a disclaimer......
So I don't know what I don't know.
I don't know what I know and don't know.
I don't know what I think I know is correct.
I don't know what I think I know and what I don't know isn't common knowledge that everyone already knows and what I think I know is wrong.
Also in most of North America and the United Kingdom; there is NO such thing as a "Pet" Turkey. Turkeys and Chickens are food animals with no rights. So the very fact that I use the term Pet Turkey might make me politically incorrect & expelled from the European Union or Ohio.
Expect to find these concepts:
From the UK BSAVA :
"Over the past decade, small-scale poultry keeping has
increased dramatically. Many of these new keepers view their poultry as pets
rather than farmyard animals. However, irrespective of the purpose for which
poultry are kept, they are technically ‘farm animals’ and ‘food-producing
animals’. Unlike in horses, there is no current provision allowing for poultry
to be classed as non-food producing animals." (UK Back Yard Poultry)
