    Tom Drumming?

    I am relatively new to turkeys, I have had my 2 hens for over a year and raised BBW last year but this is my first time with a mature tom. He has been strutting and making a pfft noise followed by a low sound. Is this what I've seen on here as drumming? What does this noise mean?
