Chuck and Henry the Turkey

Chesterton Feed and Garden Center’s tradition of a resident turkey continues this year. The annual event began when Chuck Roth, owner of Chesterton Feed and 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 Chuck 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,” says Chuck. 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 and has created many fond memories for students and teachers alike. Students learn fun facts about turkeys and their living habits, and also sit in on a Bird Feeding 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. Roth says, “We love to see all the new faces at our Turkey Tours, as well as some from previous years. 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 “Henry” through Thanksgiving at any time during business hours.
