Smudge the turkey, living in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn Missouri

Smudge and her sisters were rescued right down the road from us. One of our neighbors called us after 11 turkeys showed up at their house and were hanging out with them in their yard. They were the friendliest turkeys they had ever met and they had never seen them before so we took our trailer out to investigate. As soon as the turkeys saw our trailer they hopped right in as if they had been waiting for us the entire time! After holding them for several weeks while we tried to find out who they belonged to we welcomed them into our barn where they have proven to be some of the friendliest turkeys we had ever met. They love to be held and cuddled and help us teach every guest how friendly and sweet turkeys are!
