As The Girl and I plucked the pinfeathers off the carcass, she asked about the bird.
"What did they do with the head?"
I don't know honey. It's not very edible, so they don't usually sell it. Maybe it was used for soup, or composted into the Earth.
"If I had a turkey, I would give the head back to the Earth, 'cause it gave the turkey to us. That way we get more turkeys."
If we ever get turkeys of our own, that's what we'll do.
