Are these turkeys?

I walked out the door on Friday to find these in my front yard. Are they turkeys? I watched them as they walked across the street but never saw the big tail feathers. Any ideas?

They look kind of like female peacocks to me! Don't know why they'd be running loose, but that makes as much sense as turkeys in town. You are in town, aren't you?

I think they are cranes.

They are definitely turkeys -- wild ones.
