It's Thanksgiving, not a Halloween! Why am I scared?

"In fact, in commercial and academic turkey-breeding programs, adult male turkeys, called toms, can reach 50 pounds at the tender age of five months, said John Anderson, a longtime turkey breeder at Ohio State University.

"We get 50 pounders at 20 weeks, but that's at the top edge of our normal distribution," Anderson said. "We've got some adult male-line birds that went over 80 pounds.""

I think most Americans are very capable to gain more than 10 pounds a month :-) if challenged :-) and some even without that :-)
