      *Because of regulators' requirements of farmers in response to the current Avian Flu going around, there are some limitations to the turkeys' access to pasture this year. To be clear, Avian Flu cannot pass to humans who consume infected birds. But the virus can kill off whole flocks, so farmers and regulators take its risk seriously. This sometimes means curtailing how much a turkey or chicken flock can range, to protect them from being infected by wild birds. For their protection from 2022 Avian Flu, open-air fencing and a roof prevent the turkey flock from having contact with wild birds.
