Why does a turkey have a waddle?
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. Second it is part of a display. Depending on how the turkey feels it may show the waddle to its fullest and reddest or hide it totally.

The only turkeys that have wattles are the males. The wattle is used by the males to court the females.
The gait of a turtle is more of a plod than a waddle.
its right above their mouth or some people call it the beak
The word you seem to be referring to is WATTLES the flaps of tissue hanging from the "chin" under the beak. Not all roosters have them but most do. I raise Araucana …chickens and this breed often does not have them. There are a few other breeds that do not develop the wattle.
No, geese don't waddle. They run as I have been attacked by a goose
No. Only Male Turkeys have red waddles......:)
no the walk like chickens
because of the way the ilia is fused to the synsacrum of the bird, and the birds back bone is flexible and because it's the only way it can walk
Typically birds with webbed feet waddle, such as ducks and geese, and penguins.
cat Cat? never - cats move gracefully. Ducks and geese waddle.
No, chickens do not waddle they can walk normal. =)
