According to DailyStar, A new beak has been given to a turkey who missed the dinner table.

Before she was rescued by animal lover Lynda Free, Plump Holly was destined to be stuffed and served as a Christmas lunch.

Yet half of her bill had been cut off to avoid her pecking other birds, so in a world-first, she was given a plastic version.

“Lynda said: “Turkeys sometimes cut part of their top beak because they’re crowded and peck each other together.

Usually, beaks are trimmed when chicks are a day old.

Lynda added: “Her top beak was absolutely removed from poor Holly. It was terrible to see her struggle.”

“She did not peck. To keep her alive, I would feed her pellets, corn and mashed potatoes by hand, but it was heartbreaking.

Vet Gianluca Deli, of Horsham, West Sussex, made a screw-fastened resin beak.

I couldn’t believe the results when I saw her new bright yellow beak,” Thrilled Lynda said.” They were a piece of art! ”

At Lynda’s Freedom Farm animal sanctuary in Brightling, East Sussex, alongside 150 rescued animals and birds, Holly now tucks into food.
