Hens: Plural of "hen", the word used to refer to the adult females of many bird species.

Originally named "Toruko". Silly thirteen year old me with Google Translate. According to Wiktionary, this means "Turkey" - the country - not "turkey" - the bird. Close enough, I guess.

About Perukey Eggs

This egg was only available in the Egg Cave for November 2013.

Perukey eggs are nearly identical to the leaves found on many trees in Ark during autumn. Due to this, it is very difficult to decipher between the egg and fallen leaves. The eggs wither away indistinguishably from the leaves, and if left unattended for too long, the creature will die. Due to this, Perukey are rather rare in Ark, so they are generally not hunted for Thanksgiving.

About the Perukey Creature

At first, it was believed that Perukey and Gobblers descended from the same type of bird, however, major behavioral differences between them caused Ark citizens to begin to believe the contrary. Unlike Gobblers, Perukey are very friendly towards people, and are most content when in captivity. Unfortunately, most Ark citizens don't find the Perukey to be appealing to the eye, so it isn't common for them to be kept as pets.

In addition, while most breeds of turkey are capable of flying, the structure of a Perukey’s wings prevent it from doing so. Because of this, Perukey are easy prey for other creatures in Ark, contributing to their scarcity.
