Beer-Fed Turkeys — Sounds Good To Me!

It’s one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” things. A farmer in New Hampshire has been feeding beer to his turkeys with the hope that a beer belly isn’t just a human phenomenon.

He claims that it started in 1993, when a turkey knocked over a can left near its fence and started drinking.

His name is Joe Morette of Henniker, N.H., and he claims that his tipsy turkeys are not only fatter but also more flavorful and juicier.

Is it possible that they actually are fatter because of the beer?

According to Carl Majewski with UNH Cooperative Extension, he says the beer could affect their size, but adds that whether a turkey is juicy or not depends on how it is cooked.
