I found a 3 sided concrete bin filled with dead ones about ¼ mile from a local turkey farm. The farm had 8 long buildings housing I assume thousands of turkeys being raised for market. I think of the close quarters environment in which they are raised and wonder just how safe some of our fowl supply really is! Surely the birds are fed antibiotics for one disease and another antibiotic for a different disease etc. etc.
I found this one dead turkey to be in a rather peaceful repose, despite the grotesquely twisted leg.
