This full-feathered beauty is in front of the main office, to the left of the second door on the right. Fan blades make up the extensive plumage. The turkey is green, red and white. There are some minor parts used as well like a chain which makes up its long neck and head.

As for the rest of the sculpture garden, there is a fantastic collection of auto part sculptures located in the front. This is one of three junk yards mentioned on the Roadside Attractions website (which is how I discovered this), this one being the most impressive and prolific. The sculptures range from large to small, some are isolated and some are in groups. Most are people-based but a few are insects, plants and an angry dog which frightened me!

The folks running the counter gave me permission to walk around and snap photos. The people in the office wanted to make very clear that these sculptures are the furthest one can go. Anything further back is off-limits for insurance reasons and you are asked to not go back there. They also told me the person who made these used to work here but has been gone for a long time.
