Blue eyed beauty

Turkeys have incredible eyesight, with a range of 270 degrees and full colour - they can see better than humans.

BRUCE

Bearded boy

Turkeys have beards. A modified feather grows from the chest of males. The longer the beard the tougher the tom - Bruce is boss!

Talkative and inquisitive

Turkeys have at least 20 distinct vocalisations including chirrups, purrs and of course, gobbling!

Colourful character

Watch a turkey closely and you'll see them change colours! The necks of turkeys change based on their frame of mind.

Smart cookie

Pigs are curious and insightful animals who are widely accepted as being smarter than young children of at least 3 years of age, dogs, and even some primates.

Social butterfly

Pigs are very social animals. They  snuggle close to one another, and prefer to sleep nose-to-nose. Much like humans, they also dream.

Cool character

Pigs don't sweat! Instead to cool down they wallow in mud, which also keeps them safe from insects and the sun.

Family focussed

Piglets can recognise their own names at 2 weeks old, and Sows have even been known to 'sing' to their young whilst nursing.

Chatty character

Pigs communicate constantly with each other, and like turkeys have more than 20 different vocalisations.

Happy soul

Just like the dogs we share our homes with, pigs wag their tails when they are happy and content.

Musical Man

Turkeys love music, and have been known to gobble along happily with songs.

Complex character

Turkey language is complex.  Mothers use a special whistle when babies get lost that say “Here I am, where are you?”

Loves a hug

Turkeys love affection and many welcome being patted, scratched and hugged, often reacting with a purr of contentment.

Supersonic

A pig's squeal can be as loud as 115 decibels – that’s 3 decibels higher than the sound of a supersonic airliner.

Fast as a flash

Pigs are sprinters — they can run really fast for a short distance. A domestic pig can run at speeds of around 17 km/h, and wild pigs can run even faster.

Clean customer

Pigs are naturally very clean animals, choosing a bathroom well away from where they sleep and eat, if given the chance.

Playful piglet

Pigs, especially as piglets, love to play.  Spinning, running and rolling with their friends brings them great joy.
