Multiple Turkey Mates

 Male turkeys (toms) will mate with several female turkeys (hens) during the mating season.

Toms will spread their tale feathers, much like a peacock, and drag their wingtips on the ground, strutting and gobbling to attract hens.  Toms will stake out a territory and fight with other males while they try to gather four to six hens for their harem.
