Turkeys desperately hoping not to catch bird flu


Turkeys are fearing the worst this morning, after news broke of a new strain of avian flu in Suffolk.

Turkeys, who train all year for this month’s festivities, could face being culled before they get their big moment.

Nine month old turkey, Peter Thape is keeping a bottle of Benylin and some Beechams Hot Lemon under his wing.

‘If they spot that you’re sick you’re in for it,’ said Thape.

‘I just keep saying…I’m gonna be ok, I’m gonna be ok,’ he added.
