Thanksgiving turkeys can’t have sex because their breasts are too big. Seriously, this is not a joke.
According to the article, and this is not my opinion, apparently Americans' have an appetite for gigantic breasts (we are still referring to turkeys here). As such the modern turkey has been bred to develop large breasts. And large breasts “physically gets in the way when the male and the female try to create offspring," says Julie Long of the USDA. As a result almost 100 percent of Thanksgiving turkeys are the product of artificial insemination.
So in the turkey world big breasts are a hindrance to activities that result in offsprings. I wonder if the same can be said for other animals, such as chicken.
