Turkeys tune up

MANY pop stars have served up a turkey over their career but now a flock of Scottish birds are fighting back - after forming their own choir.

Workers noticed the turkeys went into a frenzy upon hearing music played in a tractor cab.

The birds now have a radio and have been filmed "performing" at Hopetoun Farm, near South Queensferry, West Lothian.

Farm and estate manager Mike Eagers, pictured, said: "The turkeys particularly enjoy the high notes and chip in with their own little ad-libs."
