With Thanksgiving around the corner, we've got food and festivities on our minds!
With that, here are some fun turkey facts:
Wild turkeys fly at up to 55mph over short distances.
A wild turkey can cover as much as a quarter of a mile in one flight.

Domesticated turkeys cannot fly because they've been bred for larger breasts, which are very strong, but don't help with flight!
Turkeys were first domesticated around 2,000 years ago.
Wild turkeys roost in trees.
Turkey was not served at the first Thanksgiving, but eel was!
Pumpkins were served, and they were stewed with vinegar and currants.
