Peyton Manning was rescued along with two other turkeys from Thanksgiving in Tennessee, in 2015. After learning he was safe and could accept love, he was so happy and free strutting around the barnyard. Once Peyton Manning and his brother, Luke Skywalker, reach sexual maturity at eighteen months old they started fighting. We tried keeping them separate but Peyton Manning was unhappy and frustrated living under his brother's shadow. Peyton was then moved to The Gentle Barn Missouri to be the one and only king. He was beloved by all the birds. His charisma and power in the barnyard earned him many admirers. He loved to puff out his feathers and walk around to show everyone how handsome and strong he was. His gobble echoed through the woods and it was clear to all that he was king. Peyton Manning loved his girls and cared for them deeply, he kept them safe and cared for. He peacefully passed away in his sleep at the age of 6. We are so grateful to have known and loved him. He will always be the King of our Barnyard.
