The turkey from the Schleich® Farm World is a classic. In the USA and Canada it is one of the most popular animals.
Turkeys are part of the pheasant family and are originally from North America. The male birds have black plumage with individual metallic shimmering colourful feathers. The head and neck are featherless and coloured bright red and light blue. When male turkeys compete for females during mating season they spread their tail feathers out like a fan, as shown by the turkey from the Schleich® Farm World.
Turkeys feed on seeds, berries, nuts and tree buds.
