Turkey book detail

The Turkey book is a book that players could obtain as part of the 2008 Thanksgiving event. It gives clues on where to find ten disguised turkeys around Gielinor, which players could find and spy on. If they spied on all ten, they would unlock the Give Thanks emote.

Players could obtain the book from the Cook's brother in Lumbridge Castle.

The book itself gives no instructions, and players must rely on dialogue from the cook's brother to know what the locations mean and what they should look for.


In order, the locations of the ten turkeys were as follows:


This section of the article is a direct quote, copied verbatim, from RuneScape. This content is copyrighted by Jagex.

Turkey 1, location: near a mine filled with scorpions.
Turkey 2, location: a city in the desert.
Turkey 3, location: near the river Lum.
Turkey 4, location: in a swamp behind a castle.
Turkey 5, location: near a vampyre-infested manor.
Turkey 6, location: in the city of White Knights.
Turkey 7, location: in a village near the edge of the Wilderness.
Turkey 8, location: somewhere near Varrock.
Turkey 9, location: near Mudskipper Point.
Turkey 10, location: near the Monastery.


When you finished finding the disguised turkeys, you had to talk to Cook's brother and get your reward of the Give Thanks emote. You could also kill turkeys to get Cornucopia, an item that holds foods that heals up to 1000 life points. You can still kill seagulls and other various birds to get the Cornucopia. Also, Diango can store the cornucopia if destroyed.


  • Players could keep the Turkey book after the Thanksgiving holiday event.
  • The Turkey book is not re-obtainable in any way if a player destroys it. The Cook's brother, despite being the NPC who gave the book to players, would not replace it during the Thanksgiving 2009 holiday event. Thus, it is a discontinued item which cannot be displayed to other players.
  • The Holiday Event gave Free-to-play players a chance to see what the activity from Distractions and Diversions, Penguin Hide and Seek was like, but with Turkeys.
  • The Turkey book is considered to be extremely rare because most players destroyed it after they were done since they had no use for it. Similarly rare items include the task list and the war ship from RuneScape Classic.
