Animal Spotlight: Esme the Turkey Hen
Esme, along with Eddie (one of our handsome tom turkeys), came to Heartland in 2011 from the home of a 13-year-old girl who was no longer able to keep them. For the most part, Esme is kind and gentle, but she can get riled up about things she is passionate about (usually fresh grapes and berries)!
Like most turkeys, Esme is very curious and likes to learn about things by gently pecking at them, whether it be rings, buttons, zippers, or boots. She is always observing her surroundings.
You can usually find Esme hanging out with Eddie and her hen friend, Edwina, or begging the volunteers for grapes and lettuce at the produce table.
