What Does A Turkey Look Like
A turkey is a bird with a unique appearance. They have a large body and strong legs, which they use to run away from predators. Turkeys have wings but cannot fly because their wings are made up of bones instead of feathers, like most birds’ wings. Turkeys can grow up to 2 meters tall (6 feet) and weigh up to 100 kilograms (220 pounds). The average length of their lifespan is 10-12 years for males and 16-18 years for females
head, red neck
Like a human, the head of a turkey is covered with feathers. It’s also similar to your head in that it has eyes, ears and a beak. But unlike you or me, turkeys have very large heads compared to their bodies.
The neck of a turkey is red or orange because it contains large amounts of blood vessels called carotid arteries; these carry blood from the heart directly to the brain so that turkeys can keep up with their fast-paced lifestyle
beak, face, and chin
The beak of a turkey is short, pointed and strong. The face is flat, lacking any feathers.
The chin is red, with a fleshy growth called a wattle beneath it. This fleshy growth has no function other than to make the turkey look more attractive to potential mates.
There are two types of turkeys in North America: wild turkeys and domesticated turkeys.
As you can see, the turkey is a large bird with a short neck and a small head. Its tail feathers are quite long, but not as long as other birds such as peacocks or ostriches.
The feathers on the back of this bird are dark brown or blackish (this is called “plumage”), while its chest is white. A tom turkey has spurs on his legs to help him fight with other males over territory or mates.
A turkey has some unique features of identification.
A turkey is a bird. It has feathers, a beak and legs like other birds do. There are many varieties of turkeys, but the wild turkey has a red neck that looks as if it has been painted on with red paint. The tail of the wild turkey is very long and fluffy. The face of a wild turkey is long and slender in shape with large eyes for good vision when looking for food in tall grasses or woods during daylight hours.
There are many different types of turkeys, but they all have some features in common. The most obvious is the large head and beak on an otherwise small body. Turkeys also have feathers on their necks, which can vary in color from white to orange (and sometimes even red).
