Since 1986, Farm Sanctuarys <i>Adopt-A-Turkey Project</i> has encouraged people to save a turkey at Thanksgiving. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><a href="http://www.adoptaturkey.org/aat/adopt/sponsor.html" target="_blank">http://www.adoptaturkey.org/aat/adopt/sponsor.html</a><br><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDSlQK_Hakk</a>

I adopted a turkey for Christmas last year, I'll be doing the same this year.

I love this project, and I also think it's great that celebrities like Ellen sponsor it.<br><br>
Payton, Amelinda, and Raphael, three of the ones up for 'adoption' this year, are three of my turkey friends at their Orland, California shelter. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><br>
Raphael was brought to the shelter last year with two girls that were adopted out, Payton, and I believe Amelinda, along with 9 other baby turkeys were brought there in 2009. The turkey boys are super sweet and are the reason I would like to adopt rescued turkeys one day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><br><br>
Here's handsome Raphael and three others of the five boys (Jordan, Reese, and I think that might be Payton in the back-left):<br><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/vUatT.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

What a lovely thing to do, you guys are so sweet! What do you do with the turkeys though? Do they keep them as pets? Every year during a certain Islamic festival, I see trucks full of goat on their way to getting slaughtered. I've been told they are sacrificed to feed the poor or something like that. And everytime I see those poor animals..which is every year.. I want to adopt them all. It's nice that people get to adopt turkeys <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
