Cut 8 rectangles from the brown paper, approx. 2 ½ inches by 1 inch.
Cut 8 tiny triangle beaks from the orange felt, and 8 little wattles from the red felt. Just make sure you make them small enough to fit on the kisses.
On each Hershey kiss, glue on 2 googly eyes, a beak, and a wattle.
Fold each brown rectangle in half, crease it well, then open it back up.
On the back half of the rectangle, dab glue all over it. Press 4 little feathers in a row on the glue. Fold the paper back in half and press on it for about 10 seconds. Open it up so the feathers are facing up in the air, and the bottom half the brown paper is flat against the table.
Finally, glue the Hershey kiss turkey to the bottom half. The feathers should be standing up behind the kiss.
