The turkey you eat this Christmas may have been sung to by an animal whisperer before it was slaughtered.

Elin William, 25, likes to perform musical concerts and recite lullabies in front of the birds at Rhug Estate in Corwen, Wales.

The ‘turkey whisperer’ says it calms them down ahead of their impending deaths.

Ms William, originally from Anglesey, said: ‘(Estate owner) Lord Newborough had the idea of me singing to them in the field.

‘At first I thought he was joking but decided to give it a go and they loved it.

‘We try to induce as little stress as possible on the animals so Lord Newborough decided to continue with the music as part of this.

‘It helps to keep them nice and calm.’

Ms William stays away from Christmas songs because it’s not the greatest time for Turkeys and instead sings hits including, Kylie Minogue’s ‘I Just Can’t Get You Out of my Head’ and a Welsh version of Hallelujah.

The birds apparently love the music and show their appreciation by being really loud.

A video showed Ms William performing in front of 1,000 Norfolk Bronze and Black turkeys as visitors watched on.

As well as the singing Rhug farm has a few other strange methods it uses on its Turkeys.

Ms William added: ‘Every night when they are put into the sheds they are actually herded with a sheep dog.

‘It’s really quite a sight and they are completely compliant with the dog. They just don’t seem to mind at all.

The farm has more than 1,000 turkeys, 300 geese, Aberdeen Angus cattle, wild bison and goats.
