San Francisco Turkeys Gobble This Thanksgiving Meal

Posted By on Wed, Nov 21, 2012 at 8:01 AM

We never really considered how turkeys give their thanks until we saw these San Francisco heritage breed turkeys enjoy their own special Thanksgiving meal yesterday at the Children's Zoo.

Named after famous chefs and food personalities, Alton Brown, Giada de Laurentiis, Lidia Bastianich, Paula Deen, and Rachael Ray gobbled down this medley of mush before giving the zoo its own critique of the simple cuisine.

On the menu: mixed greens with shredded carrot, zucchini, apple, melon, and grapes.

The birds were reportedly dissatisfied by the bland meal, yet thankful that they were not on the menu.
