No, not the kind who go to Washington and make all kinds of inane noise—we’re talking about regular turkeys, the ones we enjoy at Thanksgiving. Joe Morette, a New Hampshire farmer, serves his turkeys beer with their dinner. He says it makes the birds fatter, more flavorful, and juicier.

The animal rights group PETA objects, stating, that "farmers across the country use questionable practices to keep costs down or to alter the taste of animals' flesh because their priority is profit, not the animals' welfare."
We find PETA’s position a little ridiculous. Morette is not saving money by giving beer to his turkeys. And as for the animals’ welfare, the turkey is going to end up on someone’s dining room table on Thanksgiving.

Carl Majewski, a poultry specialist at the University of New Hampshire, doesn’t see any problem with letting the turkeys enjoy a little beer with their meal. Majewski himself brews beer at home and raises chickens. He has no plans to share his beer with the chickens. “I'm going to drink it instead," he said.
