Turkeys have a fleshy wattle that hangs from the underside of the beak, and a fleshy protuberance that hangs from the top of its beak called a snood. The female (the hen) is smaller than the male (the tom), and much less colorful. With wingspans of almost 6 feet, the turkeys are by far the largest birds in the open forests in which they live. While the large domestic turkey is generally unable to fly, the smaller wild turkey can fly to several meters high.
