heritage turkey breeds

here is an interesting video regarding a heritage turkey breeder in kansas! curiously, can you identify the birds behind him during the bulk of the video?? do they sound like turkeys??
here is the original link.

btw -- his breeding suggestions ARE from the 1930's and are incorrect on several levels. depending on male:female ratios (this could be 1:3 or 1:5 (male:female) for naturally mating turkeys; a breeder flock size of 200-300 can have a very small effective population size. we will discuss this in more detail in class.
