    I am new to the turkey world folks. I am finding them fascinating. Something I noticed today was how the waddle changes color. That is what it's called, right? I have 2 hens throughout the day I noticed that at times the waddle is a nice red and later it's a pale in color. My thought is that it changes color according to there fear/happy factor. Can I be wrong? Which is definitely possible, just had to ask about this.

    You are right, the color change can mean alot. To get the hens notice, aggression, nervous. I never get tired of watching them.
