Seems you answered your own question. But in case it wasn't a
rhetorical question;

Turkeys can swim. Like ducks, they use their feet for propulsion. "But
unlike ducks, they do not have webbed feet," says wildlife scientist
James Dickson of Louisiana Tech University. Without this flipperlike
feature, swimming is more strenuous.

No wonder Scott Weiser is always so exhausted after swimming!
