They have light and dark meat because the parts of the animal turkey are different every inch of its body, so when it is cooked the turkey food has different colors.
they hate turkey any way
Muscle fibers when cooked are dark meat.
No. The darker meat is the muscle that was more commonly exercised when the turkey was still alive.
The difference between white and dark meat in a chicken or turkey is that the dark meat muscles move more rapidly (running) and the white meat muscles move more slowly. The dark meat has more myoglobin so the muscles can allow the chicken or turkey to run further and longer. The white meat has less because they only need a small amount of myoglobin for short bursts of energy.

The answer to this question is a matter of opinion. Some people like the taste of turkey, and some people do not. Personally, I think turkey is very good, and my favorite is dark meat. It's more moist than the white meat of the turkey. But that, too, is a matter of personal opinion and you may like the white meat better.
