A turkey will eat anything they can catch and swallow.
All manner of bugs, crawling and flying, ants, ticks, termites etc.
All manner of reptiles, lizards, little snakes, frogs etc.
All manner of small swimming things, tadpoles, minnows, crayfish etc.
All manner of vegetation, seeds, sprouts, fruit, flowers, green leaf, buds, mast etc.
I've seen turkeys walk down a corn row and pull up newly sprouted corn to eat the seed kernel.
They may even eat carrion. Don't know that they do but sure wouldn't doubt it.
The world is a Smorgasbord to a turkey.
There ain't 100's of things for a turkey to eat, there are 1,000s.
