Our turkeys were every bit as cute and fuzzy as our chickens, at least as babies. They weren't quite as bright or easy to raise as the chickens though. They had the bad habit of drowning themselves in their watering dishes. We even made sure to use the proper self watering dishes so there was only a small area of water for them.
Not the best for kids either as they tended to chase us.
I did like their eggs which were noticeably larger than chicken eggs. The ones that chased us around tasted the best.
