    Wild turkeys come through my yard regularly.
    They come up close to the kitchen door.
    The 6 new adults for this spring (2012), have a 'friend'
    with them (bird #7). It is an adult with a
    peacock head, including the top head feathers - crest?,
    shiny iridescent blue/green thin, long neck and the rest is
    the turkey body. There is a patch of white and darker
    feathers at the top part of the wing. It moves and feeds like its turkey companions.
    I will try and capture a few photos when they come through again.
    This seems to dispute some other info I have read where they will mate but
    no eggs will be produced.
