Ocellated Turkey


Few ocellated turkeys have been bred in captivity successfully.

Sid Drenth, an exotic bird-breeder located at his Fantasia Ranch in Weatherford, Texas, has never been able to breed ocellated turkeys successfully, despite his experience with other exotic birds. He keeps peafowl, cranes, ibises, curassows and other African birds. Few people ask to buy an ocellated turkey from him.

Several zoos in the South and Southwest have ocellated turkeys on display, but few of them have bred the birds successfully, either.
