I don't know what snoods are for, but I have a theory they are to hide the beak to make the girl turkeys not be afeared of being pecked. Anyone know what the purpose is?

I think it is just there for display as a sort of barometer of a toms health and virility. All the different parts of strutting and tommish display take a lot of strength and endurance.
And that is one healthy tom
