Don't be a chicken!
That's a big chicken!
Joy Stapleton's son and husband went to a farm auction to buy chicks, with the goal of having a few egg-laying hens. Over time, one started to crow, and the other just kept growing. "One day while outside I heard a turkey 'putt.' I looked around in hopes to see a wild turkey nearby, but I saw nothing," she says. "I heard it again, only this time it was at my feet. I looked to see the little 'chicken' looking up at me." Butterball grew to be a huge tom turkey and a favorite pet. The Stapletons have since added two more turkeys to their flock.
