It's the size of a turkey but it has dots. Could it be just some domestic type of turkey that got out?

I have seen many in my day. Positive without a doubt, this is a guinea fowl. These are domestic fowl. Usually bought to help rid of fleas and ticks. Tend to make a load repetitive and obnoxious chirping sound.

neither turkey, nor duck, but chicken :)
by: Telma Franco

This is called "galinha d'angola" in Brazil, where I live. It's a kind of chicken, brought from Africa (that explains the "Angola" in its name) in the colonial times (18th and 19th centuries). Some people here still breed it as fowl, since many Brazilian dishes have African roots, as do many dishes in the southernmost states of the US.
