This is a Spanish Turkey. They  look a lot like the Bronze turkey. Spanish Turkeys seem to grow bigger than the bronze turkeys.
As you can see when they fan their feathers, they are really beautiful.  As turkeys mature, you can tell the difference between a male and female. The male turkeys are larger than the females. They will fluff at their feathers a lot more than the females do.

His name is Spike.  He got his name from, due to his personality.  Spike is the only turkey I have left.  He protects the chickens, ducks and geese.  For quite some time, he would protect the ducks and geese.

More pictures of Spike (Spanish turkey). Spike really keeps an eye out on the ducks, geese and chickens.
Spike follows them everywhere. when the geese and ducks go into the pond, Spike will stand there and wait for them to get done swimming. Sometimes, if Spike feels the geese and ducks were in the water too long, he will yell at them to come out.
