Giblet the Turkey is running amok, causing all sorts of problems! He's crafty, crazy, and he's hiding out on

He is described as a brown cartoon turkey, approximately 12 pounds, with huge eyes. He is considered tasty and delicious. If you see Giblet, you are advised to click him immediately!

Find him and your reward could be one of 5 Thanksgiving Turkeys to be given away by Heartland Ham!

Tips for Tracking Giblet

  • Giblet is a big news buff, so he will most likely be hiding in news stories, although he does venture on to other areas such as sports, weather, entertainment, and community as well! He could be anywhere!
  • Giblet scares easily, so listen for a gobbling sound when a page loads. If you hear a gobble, Giblet is on that page!
  • Since he's on the run (avoiding all those Thanksgiving chefs!), Giblet will be on a different page every day! Since Turkeys need sleep too, you will only be able to find him between 9:00am and Midnight!
  • You can search everyday to find Giblet! When you find him, click on him and you will be taken to a sign up form to enter the giveaway. You may enter once per day, entering multiple times in the same day will result in immediate disqualification.
