In this adventure of transformation she is egged on by Old Mother Turkey, who sends her to the famous physician Dr Smartfeather for the big operation! An enormous surprise awaits her in the Big City, where, instead of being transformed into a fair-feathered turkey, she turns into a haggard old hen! Desperate and deformed she returns to her village. Find out if self-important Specky learns her lesson from her terrible misadventure.
Will she learn to love herself at last, and start a new life?
