Stray turkey...what breed is this?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I had a female turkey walk into my yard yesterday. She seemed to like the place and has decided to stay. She even goes in the coop with our turkeys and chickens at night. At first I thought she was a wild turkey but her feather coloring isn't right. Also she is at too friendly to be wild. Anyone know what she is? Maybe a wild crossed with a domestic? Her bone structure is much smaller than my self blue turkey hens. Here are some pics.





5 kids, 1 DH, 5 self blue turkeys, 30 chickens, 5 ducks, 3 guineas, 5 goats 1 golden retreiver and 3 cats. I love my life!!!

Definitely not a wild turkey and may actually have some slate in her background.  Looks like a Mottled Black to me.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys, Sweetgrass turkeys and guineas.

In wonderful Wyoming.

Thank you. She has definitely been on her own for a long time. She seems to be very happy here. Last night she roosted next to our tom so I know she has been accepted.
