I have been coordinating the Farm Walk for several years now and have visited the shelter in Watkin's Glen many times. This past summer when I went I got closer to a turkey than I ever had before. He had majestic white feathers and seemed quite proud. He let me pet his feathers and then his head, which was very warm and smooth, which is not what I expected. He really seemed to enjoy the interaction. I know it's hard for people to feel for a turkey but they are very loving creatures and deserve humane treatment like every other creature on the earth. They are my new favorite animal and I hope everyone will make an effort to visit the farm and experience this for themselves.
