Resident turkey “Jordan” and Chesterton Feed and Garden Center owner Chuck Roth

The annual event began when Chuck Roth, owner of Chesterton Feed & Garden Center, brought in one of his pet turkeys for the customers to enjoy. Having raised poultry for many years, he was surprised at how many people had never seen a live turkey. Local schools began calling Roth to bring the turkey into their classrooms and teach the students about turkeys and their habitat. Turkeys are very sociable birds and responded well to the children.

“Turkeys love attention. Even something as simple as talking to a turkey is enough to make them happy and puff out their feathers,” said Roth.

After several years and many turkey visits, schools began to bring their students to Chesterton Feed and Garden Center for Turkey Tours, a tradition that has carried over to the present day. Students learn fun facts about turkeys and their living habits and also sit in on a Bird Feeder Tour, learning about our native birds as well as the feeders and seeds that attract them.

First generation turkey viewers are now bringing their children to see the resident turkey, passing down an enjoyable learning experience. Said Roth, “It’s great to see so many new faces during our Turkey Tours as well as familiar ones. Our resident turkey’s name has originated from many sources, such as employees and friends. We even had a traditional “Tom” one year.”

The general public is welcome to visit “Jordan” through Thanksgiving at any time during business hours. Chesterton Feed & Garden Center is located at 400 Locust St. and is open year round, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 219-926-2790.
