Bred animal myself

The Black Turkey is a great looking bird. They are some of the most majestic looking turkeys because of their shiny black feathers, and their muscular appearance. They also lay large eggs that are great for cooking.
The only problem I have with raising turkeys is that they are a mean bird. I was once attacked by a full grow adult male turkey, and large rooster at the same time! I was only about five years old at the time. So, I would never recommend that you leave small children around these large birds. They have sharp claws, spurs, and beaks. Those huge muscles (which we like to eat) are way stronger than you think they would be. So just be careful with your kids if you are going to have these types of birds around.
