Wild poults have brown feathers. Dark feathers help them blend in with their habitat. They live in forests and fields. But poults on farms have white or yellow feathers. They do not need dark feathers. They live on farms where they are protected from predators.

Some farmers let their turkeys look for food in the grass. Turkeys peck at the grass with their beaks. Turkeys eat insects and vegetables. Insects have a lot of protein. Protein is good for turkeys. It helps their bodies stay strong.
