Joe Morette, a New Hampshire farmer has found a unique way to fatten up his turkeys before Thanksgiving. He feeds them a steady diet of protein and beer. This gives new meaning to “Wild Turkey”.

“The turkeys, as well as other animals, like beer,” says owner Joe Morette. “I’m one of them.”

He goes through between 50 to 60 cans a day for the nearly 300 birds on his farm.

“It slows them down a little. They’re enjoying their life,” says Morette.

At least until Thanksgiving.

    Not sure if anyone wil respond or not, but at what age of the turkey, is it ok to start giving them beer?
