I live on an island in Canada, where about four or five years ago someone decided to raise/free range some turkeys. We have a large and healthy population of eagles and hawks, and this did not go well... the person abandoned the project, and we have had four hens which survived roaming feral around the middle of the island ever since. We lost one the year before last and one early this spring, then in September the remaining two hens suddenly had three fairly well grown poults. We seem to be down to one hen and one poult now. Strangely there are no toms, no one has seen one since the initial release, and the ladies were constantly hanging out by our small general store. Could turkeys or chickens, like some reptiles and amphibians, be capable of asexual reproduction under extreme local extinction level pressures? or changing their sex to save their species? How did we get poults without a Tom, this is the first year there have been new turkeys since the initial release!
