    Some turkeys do get like that. It's not something that you want. It doesn't affect the birds at all. If these are meat birds it won't matter a whole bunch at fair.

    A lot of turkeys do that when they start feathering out. Their little wings aren't strong enough to support the feathers yet. Don't worry, they'll grow out of it soon :)

    This has been my experience as well. It disappears eventually.
