This article is about the turkey from the 2009 Thanksgiving event. For the turkey from the 2008 Thanksgiving event, see Turkey
Turkeys were part of the 2009 and 2010 Thanksgiving event and were found in a pen near Fred the Farmer's house. Even though they were level 138, they were very inaccurate and low-hitting. Killing turkeys did not give any experience except in the 2010 edition where burying the bones lead to a minimal addition in prayer experience. In order to face them, players were given gravy from the Gravy Boat of Saradomin by the Cook's brother. This allowed players to deal damage high as 1999 (or 199 in 2009 before the life point update) in one hit, regardless of players' stats, equipment, and combat level. They were easy to kill but it would have taken a few minutes to slay all the turkeys in the field. If the player left the area of the turkeys, 10 new turkeys would respawn after the player entered the area again.
They dropped raw turkeys and normal bones; however, the Cook's brother stopped any players from picking the raw turkey up.
The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
- Killing the turkeys was the only way a free player could hit over 100 (that was before the Constitution update, meaning players could have hit 1,000+).
- While normal damage was increased greatly, poison still had the same effects, and still dealt the same damage as in normal situations.
- Though the turkeys' life points were high, they didn't have the extended health bar similar to the Corporeal Beast.
