Tilley & Turkeys

A short time ago we lost a Cedar Row resident with a dual personality. Tilley was affectionate in the winter when she needed you for your body heat and a little bit standoffish in summer unless she wanted food. She was a turkey of many faces and we certainly miss having her around.

People often forget that turkeys are smart animals with personalities and character and know exactly where they are and what you’re up to. They enjoy having their feathers stroked and you’ll find them dancing around when reunited with a person they recognize. Anyone who spent time with turkeys like Tilley learned quickly that turkeys are as varied in personality as dogs and cats (and people!).

With a life expectancy of roughly 10 years, most turkeys don’t live to see their first birthday on factory farms so places like Cedar Row remain important havens for rescued birds like Tilley. To spend time with birds like turkeys, chickens, ducks and geese why not come to one of our working visits and meet our feathered friends in person!
