Male turkeys are sometimes referred to as toms, whereas females are simply known as hens. Both can reach up to 4 feet tall, though toms are noticeably larger and heavier than hens; the former can reach weights ranging between 10 and 25 pounds, while the latter are usually only half as heavy.
Much like chicken, toms are easy to differentiate from the females. Besides their size, toms possess a more colorful plumage, as well as a recognizable fleshy appendage hanging from the head, which is known as a snood.
Turkeys are famous for their hostility and relentlessness. They are fiercely aggressive and territorial animals that have evolved to understand the concept of doors to the point that they became capable of jumping on door handles and opening them, differentiating them from the smaller and more docile chicken. Combined with the fact that turkeys will attack anything they perceive as an enemy and you get an animal that is more often hunted than it is raised. Turkeys are so aggressive, in fact, that they are not scared of any creature, no matter how big or dangerous; they will relentlessly peck at threats whilst making noisy gobbling noises. If the intruder hasn't fled, this usually results in a fight to the death.
Despite their hostility, turkeys can in fact be domesticated with appropriate care and precautions. As such, some farms have chosen to keep and raise a population of turkeys, either in complement, or to replace the traditional chicken population. The biggest motivation for this choice is their ability to produce more meat and eggs on average than chicken. It is even possible to find canned turkey for sale in the Mazes.
