My turkeys' waddles (and head for that matter) seem to change color with moods.  If I make certain noises when I am sitting with them, they will all turn bright red, even the hens.  Make different noises, and they seem to calm down and go pale.  But sometimes they are all red for no apparent reason.  It is amazing how fast they can change color.

Chickens were fun...until I got turkeys!
Narragansetts, Golden Narragnasetts, Royal Palms, Calico, Standard Bronze, Red Bronze, (and a few BB Bronze..but don't tell anyone!)
Mixed flock of laying hens
Mixed-stock pigs

Two-many horses
