The turkey is a large bird, a fowl.

Behind the scenesEdit

The turkey is native to North America. When the bald eagle was chosen as the emblem of the United States, Benjamin Franklin thought that this was not a good idea. He instead proposed, that the turkey was a better choice. Franklin considered the eagle a carrion-eater and opportunist. He thought the turkey, to be cleaner, smarter, more useful, and possessing better habits--all in all, a better choice to represent a nation.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The turkey is an answer in one of the King's Questions, as a bird that does not appear in the King's Quest games. The turkey is referenced in the An Encyclopedia of Daventry.
