The Smoke-Phase Turkey

These beauties occur throughout the United States, including right here in Tennessee! Smoke-phase turkeys are distinctly different from albinos and can range from solid white, to pale grey, to— like this fellow here— white with handsome black markings. These gorgeous patterns are a natural occurrence in wild turkeys and do not mean that the turkey is a domestic breed or hybrid. Have you ever seen a smoke-phase turkey in the wild?
