    We are excited to announce the November login reward! To celebrate Autumn (and the traditional feasts of Thanksgiving here in the United States), every player who logs in during the month of November will receive a unique Turkey Statue!

    Fun Trivia: Benjamin Franklin wanted to make the turkey the national bird of the United States but the Bald Eagle ended up being chosen.

    To receive the rewards simply login to the game before the end of November and check your rewards tab!

    Greetings DarkStarr
    I love turkey, especially with gravy! I do have one question though. Can this statue be resized? I would love to have a giant Turkey watching over my planting beds. If it can be resized how small/big can it be?

    The stuffing of this statue in every login account cannot be taken for granite. Do not run a fowl of not logging in during R71!

    Always keep a breast of what's going on so you can get a leg up and harvest as many of these noble birds as possible

    We do not celebrate Thanksgiving here in Germany and have no relation to the strange bird, so i hope that i can sell or delete it. Well, it is not so easy to find something great that you have no relation at all.

    The technology already exists for the "choose one of the following" rewards bags. Could have something like that, with 1-2 alternatives, and maybe a "cash equivalent".

    That may sound kind of entitled, but let's not fool ourselves here. It's an incentive to keep people logging into the game, forming a habit. We both know where we stand.

    I think we have something similary in Germany. a lot of people are meeting together and have a Erntedankfest. Its not the same like in US. No presents. No turkey. Some churches are decorated with a lot of vegetables.

    Well, we are celebrating thanksgiving in church to be thankful in general for the fruits of the earth ..

    Besides: people have a relation to this "strange" bird:
    Turkey is also a traditional christmas meal in Germany ;)

    Exactly where I got the term "noble bird" phrase from. For whatever reason, I truly enjoy this movie. Thanks, @Cordelayne !!!

    Don't see the need to make things more complicated........... a gift is a gift. IMHO

    My in game name is Turk Key. But that doesn't mean I get offended by all these jokes. Reminds me of the famous song, Baby Turkey. I can't wait for the whole set. Baby, Mommy, Daddy, Grandma and Grandpa.

    Just pretend it is not a Thanksgiving themed statue and view it as a cute statue.

    Unfortunately in Germany the standard ovens are too small to fit a huge turkey in that can serve up to 10 people. I‘ve roasted small young ones, but ended up eating turkey for a week because my German husband won‘t even try it, under the motto „Was der Bauer nicht kennt, frisst er nicht.“

    I like your husband. *g*

    ...but realy? turkey = cute?
    puppys = cute, ok.
    babys = cute, ya.
    me = cute, true
    but a turkey?

    @ Michael, turkeay a traditional german christmas meal???

    Although I have only lived in Germany for 49 years, I know one or two christmas meals who a realy a german tradition, like duck, fish or deer...

    But if i believe the tv or internet, then halloween is also a german tradition, lately.

    Long story short, this sweet, cute and lovely bird is not erasable and that really annoys me.

    :)

    I wouldn't say, halloween is a german tradition ;) Well, it wasn't in my childhood.
    But, yes, besides duck our family and alot I know of, used to eat turkey on chrismas.
    Maybe it's just a regional thing, like "Lederhosen" ;)
