Wednesday - 11/24/2021 — I know this is an extra (i.e. non-Friday) post, but this seems like an appropriate day to mention an article from Smithsonian Magazine last year that told about ancient Incan people raising turkeys as valuable friends and not as food. When an elderly turkey died, it was buried intact.
They made blankets from the feathers shed by molting turkeys. And I have to believe they appreciated all the bugs the turkeys ate.
To find the article (if the link doesn't work for some reason), search for “turkeys were friends not food.”
