Due to an inherited condition called tetanic torticollar spasms, turkeys often stare at the sky for 30 seconds or more -- even if it's raining -- giving the impression that they are "dumb." Also, turkeys often tilt their heads because they have monocular vision. Their eyes are placed far apart, so they cannot focus both eyes on one image like humans can. To compensate, they tilt their heads to the side to get a better view. Turkeys are not dumb -- instead they're very social with each other and with humans.
