Story 1 - Thanksgiving Turkey

The turkey is a bird. Most turkeys live in the woods. They can be found in the U.S. and Mexico. Most turkeys live in the east and in the middle of the United States. Turkeys are wild.

People eat turkey at Thanksgiving. You can catch a turkey. Yet, it is hard. Turkeys can run fast. They can run 25 miles per hour. Wild turkeys can also fly because they weigh a little. Other turkeys can’t fly because they are heavy.

At Thanksgiving, turkey is baked in the oven. The cook may stuff the turkey first. Bread crumbs and spices are put into the turkey. Then it is cooked for a long time. At dinner time, mom or dad may cut the turkey into pieces.

Story 2 - What is a turkey?

Turkeys are birds that can be different colors. Wild turkeys are brown with dark green feathers. Other turkeys are more colorful. They may be brown, green and blue.

Turkeys can fly if they do not weigh a lot. The heavy birds can’t fly. Also, at first baby turkeys can’t fly either. After two weeks, the baby turkey will learn to fly.

Both the male and female turkey have a flap of skin. This skin is under its chin. This is called the wattle. If the wattle gets red, the turkey may be mad or scared.
