    What I've heard is that they can't eat bread, 'cause it gets stuck in their gizzards.

    I haven't really found anything that my turkeys don't like yet. When it was summer, and our tomatoes were in full bloom, they actually ran through the electric fence to eat them! Little stinkers. I ended up chasing them out with a broom every time. Even electric fences wouldn't keep em out. Later, I gave them butternut squash and man did they purr and cluck. It always cracked me up whenever I would give them lettuce as babies and one would snatch the lettuce and take off running.
