Text from the story:

Turkeys are very big birds! They are different from most birds because they have no feathers on their heads or necks. Like chickens and some other animals, turkeys take dust baths instead of water baths. They cover themselves with dust to keep insects away. Turkeys also fly high up into trees to spend the night. This is called roosting. Just before the sun comes up, turkeys begin to gobble. They gobble for most of the morning.

Male turkeys are called "toms," and female turkeys are "hens." Males are bigger and more colorful than females. They have bright flaps of skin on their necks called "wattles." Female turkeys build nests from dried leaves and grass. They build their nests on the ground in hidden places. Turkeys lay between 9 and 18 eggs at a time.
