That’s a big bird!

Getting the right sized turkey can be tricky. Too small and your guests will go hungry, too big and it ends up in the bin. In Wales we buy 800,000* turkeys at Christmas, the same weight as 30,000 santas! Yet, the equivalent of 160,000 will get thrown away. Use our handy guide to get the prefect size:
