 Richmond, Va (WRVA) -

Two Turkeys enter the White House grounds but only one will be pardoned.

The two turkeys that are named Peas and Carrots are from a farm in South Dakota. President Trump will pardon one of the two birds today at 1 p.m.

Both birds were hatched on June 28th of this year.  Peas weight is 39 pounds with a wing span of 36 inches. Carrots clocks in at 41 pounds with a wing span of 36 inches.

Do not be sad for either bird, neither Carrots nor Peas will be found on anyone’s Thanksgiving table this year or ever. Peas and Carrots will spend the rest of their natural lives appropriately at "Gobblers Rest” on the campus of Virginia Tech.
