Jewett, OH, United States
We have many, numerous wild turkey flocks in the area; this day, however, I captured an all-white turkey within a flock. Could this be a true albino turkey? Or possibly just a domesticated one (I’m unaware of any turkey farms/production in the area)?
I captured this photo before Project FeederWatch begins, but am so interested as to what the origins and explanation of this white turkey that I wanted to submit it.
Photo was taken October 4, 2016, around 8:45am in Jewett, OH. Light rain, mild morning temperatures. Turkeys were in a field, backyard of a homestead in the area. Photo was taken from a car.
