You'll meet The Boys - Dakota, Seneca, Cheyenne- all saved from Thanksgiving slaughter. They've been de-beaked and de-toed. Franny is one of our beautiful bronze girls who was rescued from a turkey breeding farm. The Spice Girls are 12 plucky ladies saved before they could be mutilated by a hatchery. Jude is a sweet male turkey who saved himself from Thanksgiving slaughter.
