No, wild turkeys do not mate for life. Turkeys travel in same sex flocks. During the breeding season, March and April, one male will find a flock of females and mate with several of the female turkeys from the flock.

Physically there's not much difference between the heritage breeds of domesticated turkeys and wild turkeys. They can both fly, naturally mate and have the ability to learn to forage and live without humans. They are similar weight and proportion.
