Can Turkeys Drown in the Rain?

Answer

While turkeys have monocular vision and are able to look skywards for up to 30 seconds at a time, scientists say that the myth that turkeys will drown should they look up during a rainstorm is exactly that.

According to scientists, the worst that could happen if a turkey looked up during a rainstorm would be that the turkey would lose focus on the raindrops themselves. There would be no turkeys harmed at all.
