The name of the red dangly thing is a Wattle ,

and believe it or not the redder and brighter and bigger the wattle the more the female turkeys find their male to be a studmuffin!

Actually, the thing above the turkey's beak that extends and contracts is called a snood.

A snood is defined as: A caruncle that hangs over the beak of a turkey
