"It has a black and white plumage, wrinkled skin on its neck, and on the top of its head a fleshy crest which, when the cock gets angry, swells up and covers its whole snout; on some of them that crest is a russet colour mixed with bluish purple."
– Bartolomeo Scappi, Opera dell'arte del cucinare, 1570
Many are the peculiar lifeforms which in the time of the great flood left Noah's ark to find terra firma in this New World, and few among them are more peculiar than the Turkey. Turkey Farming allows you to construct Turkey Coops, which can be used to breed Turkeys.
Turkey Gobblers and Turkey Hens can be caught in the wild or raised from a Turkey Poult while Fertile Turkey Hens are only found in the wild. In the wild all Turkeys look the same - you won't see which type it is until you pick up a Knocked Out Turkey. To raise Domesticated Turkeys at least one Turkey Gobbler must be present in your Turkey Coop for your Turkey Hens to lay Turkey Eggs. Eggs appear in the space beneath the Hens. If that spot is occupied, the Hen will not lay an Egg. Turkey Droppings appear in the bottom left spot and work their way across before moving up the next row, which means that Hens on the the very bottom row will often be unable to lay Eggs because the Turkey Droppings will block the space beneath them. An untouched Turkey Egg will hatch into a Turkey Poult after about 48 hours. NOTE: Moving a Turkey Egg may never hatch.
Turkey Purity is based on a combination of the average Purity of all Turkeys inside it and the Purity of the Turkey Coop itself, and chance. Each time a Turkey Egg is lain with a higher Purity than the Turkey Coop, the Purity of the entire Turkey Coop will increase by up to .10%. A Turkey will have the Purity of the Turkey Egg it was hatched from. That Purity will be passed onto the products which come from that Turkey. Wild-caught Turkeys will always have a Purity of 0% which will generally negatively affect the average Purity of the Turkey's inside a Turkey Coop.
