The fleshy protuberance on top of their beak is called a snood, and the underside is called a wattle. Just like our peacocks, male turkeys can fan their tail feathers to detract a mate or let an intruder know that he’s annoyed.
Our turkey enclosure was built by young people on reparation activities from the Youth Justice Service. This enclosure is one of many projects completed by the service, who we continue to collaborate with. We are very proud of the work we do with community groups and thankful to all involved.
