What if it's a gobble-no-show?

post #1 of 4

Hi!

I have 3 Turkeys-2 male Broad Breasted Bronze & 1 female Broad Breasted White- that are about 2-2 1/2 feet high.

I wonder....WHEN WILL THEY START GOBBLING?

They are about 17 weeks old. No gobble yet. When will it come? :)

Thanks!

Poultry are my most favorite farm animal, and the most amusing!

I am the proud owner of 14 Isa Browns, 1 German Shepherd-Great Pyrenees guardian dog (in my photos),3 Silkies, 1 adorable orange tabby cat named Annie Perbu, and 31 chicks which include Bantams and ISA Browns.

My weakness is learning. I will learn about anything. Anywhere. Including My animals, (even though I should already know...

Are you sure they are males? I find standing around making various noises and calls can always get most young toms to start gobbling.

I've never had a female gobble. I have had them display.
