Talking Turkey in Your McHenry New Homes
In our McHenry new homes, turkey is not only the No. 1 choice for Thanksgiving dinner but also for Christmas.Â Our family always had it for both, but I didn’t think that most families had it again on Christmas.Â The estimateÂ is that more thanÂ 65 million turkeys are served as the main course for these two Holidays.
Some interesting facts are that wild turkeys can fly, up to 55 mph for short distances. But domestic turkeys can’t flyÂ because they are bred and raised to be so heavy.Â The average turkey weighs 15 pounds, but you can certainly get them much, much bigger.
The first birds were shipped to England through the country of Turkey (by the Spanish), and that’s how this delicious bird became the meat of two of our wonderful winter holidays.
