Turkey quails are a new species of turkeys mixed with the DNA of wild quails. Studies date back thousands of years ago when they were domesticated but nowadays they don't cooperate with humans very well, though there's a chance that they can still be domesticated, albeit temporarily. If they see another human being or any other animal, they will always make a run for it, even leaving their own eggs and babies behind rather than protecting them. They will only attack if restrained, though their beaks aren't strong enough to pluck out eyes. Nothing else is known about these mysterious birds other than the fact that they can't fly for too long---they can only fly for an average 13-17 seconds, which can be quite dangerous considering that they will often divebomb into random objects, including the possibility of injuring people.
Besides having conflicts with humans, turkey quails also tend to be quite aggressive near household pets, as all towns recommend people to fight back and not allow themselves to back down. Since they're often a pest to society by picking out garbage cans as well as devouring berries from bushes and certain crops, therefore damaging them, they're often a target of game hunting. Like regular turkeys, these birds are often eaten during Thanksgiving and Christmas; their meat is exceptionally delicious, especially when dipped in berry juice that makes it taste way better regardless if it's eaten cooked or raw.
They don't get along with chickens very well, which prompts humans to build larger fenced-in areas, even installing tall electric fences to prevent the turkey quails from escaping. The chicken coops designed for these birds are a few times larger, especially for even the fattest of turkey quails that can still outrun the humans and certain animals. If fed with enough berries and chicken feed, they can be temporarily calmed every often, but they will eventually run around the fenced-in area, looking for a moment to escape---more areas are often constructed with better fences/walls as well as having people to restrict their movements to keep them from escaping the coops. There are usually people stationed in towers or automatic arrow-firing turrets ready just in case if turkey quails do try to fly to escape, which is why people build large areas for chickens and install turrets first before rounding them up at a good distance and chasing them in enclosed areas that should have enough space for them as well as providing for them coops to lay their eggs.
