I have an approximately 6 month old black turkey who has grown feathers all over his/her head/neck. I'm completely new to owning turkeys and this one is my first and only so this might be completely normal, but I just want to make sure because I'm having a hard time finding any information about turkeys regrowing head feathers. Up to a few weeks ago he was completely bald like any other turkey, then I went on a six week roadtrip and when I returned his head looked nearly black from all the feathers that had regrown. I know turkeys can still have some fuzz around their bald head, but these feather tufts are completely growing back. I'm only slightly worried because I know about diseases such as Cushing's which can involve uncontrolled hair growth and was worried that the regrowth of feathers could be a sign for something else. 6 weeks ago Current After looking up black turkeys some more, I saw some females with feathered heads. So maybe this is just finally the deciding trait that means it's a girl. I'm just a little confused because I always thought that once a turkey went bald it would stay bald.
