    Is this an albino wild turkey hen? She is in the flock of wild turkeys that frequent my yard. There is also one that looks like this in a flock north of my parents house.

    No looks like a domestic cross, like a sweetgrass or calico.

    She looks like the result of someone letting free range domestic turkeys interact with the wild species.

    She is mixed with a heritage turkey. Also, albinos have no color!

    I am not sure if true albinos exist in turkeys? If so, it would be white with pink skin/legs and red eyes. She could also be in breeding plumage. My muscovies get all faded & roughed up around this time of year.
