Our turkey is 8 1/2 years old, but he can still strut his stuff!

    Wow, he is old and still looking good. How long do turkeys live anyway? You must be taking good care of him. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Per Wikipedia, the average lifespan of a domesticated turkey is 10 years. He no longer can fly and roost, and the geese beat him up so now he is living in the pheasant/peafowl pen. He seems to be doing OK in there- he has shelter, space, and all the food he can eat.

    What a beautiful bird! I love turkeys. I didn’t know they got that old.

    Thanks Becky. He is pretty and seems to know it. His feathers really turned bronze in the sun ( which we do not have this time of year). We will see what his lifespan is.
