In preparation for tomorrow’s big day, I offer you a selection of articles on the theme of turkey science:

How did the turkey in my oven get so big?

Should I have bought a Heritage bird (and what is a Heritage bird anyway)?

How do white meat and dark meat differ? Should I worry that turkeys are given antibiotics? Should I worry about hormones and steroids in my turkey?

Will the turkey make me sleepy?

And from my neighbor over at Food and Think, Smithsonian’s new food blog: Do we need to be concerned about how turkeys are treated at the farm?

At FaT you’ll also find an entire history (or eat-ymology) of the turkey. Already read up on your turkey facts? Try the turkey quiz.
