After killing several of these, players received Give Thanksemote along with a Cornucopia. The emote itself was given as a sort of "drop", i.e. received on the first kill, or after a hundred — it was entirely random.They were also extremely easy to kill.
If players wanted to kill turkeys for their meat, bones, or just plain fun, there were only four places that seemed to constantly spawn turkeys. These were east of the cabbage field near Port Sarim, and can easily be reached the cabbage-port of an Explorer's ring (3). This area is single-combat.
The second area is just east of Gunnarsgrunn and can be accessed easily through a skull sceptre. This area is multi-combat. There used to be a glitched turkey in the barbarian house where the turkey was stuck behind 2 chairs and instantly respawned after death. There was also a glitched turkey in the Edgeville general store. The third area is north of Falador, near Doric's smithing cabin. Lastly, turkeys were also found in the Grand Exchange, which seemed to be the most popular place to kill turkeys. There was another glitched turkey in Peska's house, the Barbarian who sells helms, near the door. If a turkey was in front of the door, the turkey immediately respawns and the drop appears on top of the shelf. The last glitched area was the Edgeville bank, where the turkey would continue to appear inside, where the bankers were.
Turkeys would instantly respawn. They did not always respawn in the same location they were killed in.
If you get a large group and kill every turkey you see in that area, they will multiply so much that they will roam into other areas and make more turkeys there
There appears to be 7 glitches found when doing the "Giving Thanks" emote.
When you start a fire, quickly start the emote. You will look distorted in the turkey but will eventually turn into any ordinary level 5 turkey size.
The next glitch is that you will be holding a 2h-sword in one hand after activating the emote.
Another glitch is that if you do the emote when Stealing Creation is about to start, you will remain in the waiting room until the next game. This was fixed due to an update in which players cannot do any emotes while in the lobby.
Also, if you use Freeze when you are still kneeling as a human, you will stand still and the ice will slide off you, and you cannot move until the ice slides back and shatters
The points and time in the Stealing Creation activity will reset after doing the emote.
After doing the emote, the player temporarily appears to be invisible.
If you open house options while starting the emote, you will look distorted and will sometimes end up as a pair of turkey legs.
If you use any object (including raw/cooked turkey meat) at a turkey (disguised) it will say "Gobble gobble, gobble" (I have no use for that).
If you examine a raw piece of turkey ,it will say "A raw turkey".However,if you examine a raw piece of turkey drumstick, it will say "I need to cook this first" Which is what happens when you examine other kinds of raw food(chicken/beef etc.).
At the group of turkeys at Gunnarsgrunn some turkeys appear to be walking on water.
The examine text said for 2008 "It's huge and delicious!" while the 2009 and 2010 text said "It's huge and delicious."
Their combat level was changed to 138 in the separate 2009 Thanksgiving Event, which was repeated in 2010.
There is a glitch were if you eat a cooked turkey drumstick it will say "You eat the turkey" and when you eat a cooked turkey it will say "You eat the turkey drumstick". This glitch has yet to be fixed.
