Heather the turkey, living in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn Tennessee

Heather was rescued with her two brothers in 2015 from Thanksgiving. She lived in horrible conditions and saw terrible things being done to other turkeys. She was handled very roughly and was given no reason to ever trust. Heather was the first of the three turkeys to come close to us though. She is so intelligent and curious. When we talk to her she cocks her head to the side trying to understand what we are telling her. Anytime there is something new or different in the barnyard she spends hours watching it. Heather didn't know kindness at the beginning of her life, but now instead of running and hiding from us, Heather will hang out right next to us and eat from our hands. She is such a special girl and we are happy to have her as part of our forever family here in Tennessee.
