Today i noticed a few of my turkey’s waddles appears white instead of red – is that frostbite??
Did you know turkey’s waddles and faces turn colors when they’re feelin aggressive?
The turkey uses the waddle in 2 ways. One, it is a cooling device, when the weather is hot the turkey expands the waddle with blood so that it can cool down in the air.
The to and fro movement of wattles could be thought of as a waddle. Add the fact that a fat turkey may waddle along, throw in some possible influence of the word “wobble”, and I think we have an eggcorn.
