A Peacock's Love Saves a Turkey from Slaughter

If you’re a fan of interspecies love, you’re going to adore this story.

A female turkey named Miss McFeathers who was bred to become a Christmas meal was being harassed by her peers. So the farmers at Hopetoun farm in Scotland separated her from the other turkeys and let her roam. That’s when an unlikely interspecies romance saved her life.

Pendragon, the resident male peacock, noticed Miss McFeathers and found himself smitten. Since then, the two have become quite the item.

Farm manager Mike Eagers said about the pair, “He roosts outdoors at night while we lock her back up so that the foxes don’t get her but each day they return to each other’s side.”

He continued, “We are far too attached to Miss McFeathers to resign her to a turkey’s usual fate at Christmas – this is one relationship we want to see grow and grow. We have all enjoyed watching the love story unfold as they undertake their courtship. The two are inseparable and Miss McFeathers has even rejected her fellow turkeys in favour of Pendragon’s company.”

Of course, that’s just one turkey saved out of the many. She’s a lucky girl, to both be spared and to have found a devoted companion. Fingers crossed she leads a long and happy life.
