Inquiring minds: Where's the Turkey?

Each week the staff at the Roseville Library answers more than 2,500 questions on every subject under the sun. Here are some of the most interesting ones they’ve gotten lately.

Q. Every summer in my neighborhood, we have a flock of wild turkeys wandering around.  There’s a mother and several babies who get progressively bigger and bigger as the months go on.  Then, around this time of year, they disappear, but next spring I see the mother again with a new batch of babies. My question is: what happens to the flock each fall?  Are they ending up on someone’s Thanksgiving menu?
