The turkey, in some ways, seems to be born from the fusion of a low and slow ostrich and a rather ugly peacock. It’s a bird, and like the hen, it can’t fly even if it has rather strong wings because it’s quite heavy. The head is the naked neck of red-blue color, and the male can open the tail.

The turkey is an animal of the genus Meleagris originating in North America and introduced in Europe in the fifteenth century: belonging to the family of hens, the specimens are generally slender, with long legs and relatively short wings and tail.
The top of the turkey, the head and neck, are lumpy. The beak is, on the contrary, short and arched; in the specimens of masculine gender, there is a lump which may assume a conical or flaccid shape depending on the state of the animal.

The wings of the turkey are rounded while its tail is composed of 18 feathers, which assumes the characteristic “wheel-shaped” shape during the courting.
The turkey is a gregarious animal that usually spends a lot of time in large groups. Although it has wings, the turkey spends most of its existence on the ground, wandering through the woods.
The organization of the group is surprisingly hierarchical: the herd of birds is led by an old specimen that regulates and disciplines any movement.
The leader of the pack will tell the others what to do and whether to fly over it.
The diet of a turkey is not complicated, and it feeds on: Herbs, Vegetables, Berries, Walnuts, Small insects.
The turkey breeding season begins in February: males and females divide and lead separate lives. When a female emits a signal, the males rush towards her and start the courting phase, challenging each other with the wheels we were talking about above and with specific verses.
Usually, the female lays between 10 and 20 eggs once a year. The nest built for laying eggs is quite bare and is composed by few feathers; usually, they are assembled around April and are found in hidden and easily defensible areas.
