Male turkeys are more colorful than the female ones (and they are quite a bit larger too). Another fun fact about the boys — their head can change color depending on their mood! A bluer tint can mean that the bird is more excited than normal; red means that they’re in a fightin’ mood. Watch out!
And now for my favorite fact about turkeys: you know that little bit of flesh that hangs below their beaks? Well it’s called a “snood.” Yes, a snood. But before you go around trying to show off this new bit of knowledge, you should know that snood can also mean “a wide ring of knitted material worn as a hood or scarf.” Ya learn something new every day.
